A Letter To Wives

A Letter To Wives long poem


Painful, we fight with verbal knives.
As our women and men need no fight,
Nor they should suffer any loss in that;
But need to be paved in rough roads,
From the husband’s office-rules, you say,
The odds and orders, that never suit,
For a positive, than possessive road,
For a peaceful family life, I agree.

Better be free, rather trespass, paths
If you don’t feel concerned of, relations,
We keep in wrong track; I forget;
Agree, you need, special, love and care
And I made you safe, a secured life;
Keep apart our ill-feels and irritations;
To safeguard the peace of mind, for both,
With no war or bombardments, we had.

Let us sit, discuss and sort out,
The facts as facts, as we did in pubs,
With a coffee or beer, tell me as you like.
And talk, leaving all prejudices out,
And let us finish our issues, here itself,
Instead of going to the seminar halls,
Speaking against all husbands, in this world;
For they, have not done any harm to you.

You target me alone, not other husbands.
I know not, why you violent in this way
And hate all men in this world, as you
Blame the whole men as your enemies.
Better, keep away yourself from your men.
Free ourselves, the only way, to get freedom;
And getting others with force, is not so easy,
The real problem, we men and women face.

Never, I ignored you, nor did I
Send you out; getting away from home,
By oneself is different; that’s personal,
As long as, you can manage as you like;
Freedom that is acquired by own will,
But not, offered or ordered by others,
Attain and enjoy it as your right, using own
Thoughts, the mental strength, you hold.

Instead of making cries and shouts,
That no way helps to be happy, but think;
As man and woman, both having rights,
Just go through our social norms,
Generally not affecting you or me;
But tell me if I did wrong anywhere,
On your way, that I would change,
To look after our kids, the little birds.

And let us have their trust on us.
Am afraid of our kids’ future life,
Too much, they listen to our deeds.
They listen to television slots too,
On family courts, the arguments,
For and against husband and wife,
On various cases, and the same,
They ask, what harm, I have done.

Let us speak, in our bed room,
But not to our kids, to listen; not good,
They may also split their thoughts,
To part them just as a boy and a girl,
In two different poles, as you talk.
And they too will start quarreling,
Just as a, mere man and a woman
Apart from blood relations, they have.

Let us discuss once again, positively,
To live as lovers, in different homes,
Keeping limitations and freedom of lovers;
I will keep mum, and calmly listen to you
As I was doing, years back, in pubs,
When you loved me most and I loved you.
Certainly, for the sake of our children,
Do come and join together with our kids.
