Friends Or Foes?

Friends Or Foes? short poem

Women live by heart
Men live by their heads.
Former is close to Nature
The latter aims at assets.

Women’s path is of love
Men’s is of meditation,
Former flows out of heart
The latter from concentration.

Women tend to lose the self
To gain what they want
Men shield the self
Love’s Freedom they want.

Love binds men to stake
Which they dislike by nature
Women accept all shackles
For their love at full stature.

That’s why a rare conflict
Goes on between the two
None is inseparable from
Each other still are bitter foe.

Good poem, well written with some spot on observations. It would be nice to think that all couples fitted like 2 pieces of a jigsaw – what a peaceful world we would have! Shame that’s not always the case. Thank you. I enjoyed.

Missing Friends

This life is not enough to understand a girl friend what a thing she is! No dictionary has enough words to say about a real girl friend whatever she is. Sometimes we think the girlfriend is just like the summer.
