'A Woman's Life'

A woman's life is not easy to live!
her whole life devoted to others
learning her fates, sacrafice to give.

To clean and cook, bear a man's child
and through monthly cramping and mood swings
she's still expected to smile!

Mammograms, squeezing her breasts
between two cold metal plates!
Still hubby wants them suckers the biggest
But says, 'that anything over a handfuls
a waste? '

You better stay slender and tight!
while he's fat and falling apart!
Sitting in his easy chair, watching sports
while lifting one butt cheek, too fart!

You try your best, to look as good as you can
while chubby, hubby watches the girly shows
viewing others, tight rear ends!

A woman's life is not as pictured to be
in a young girls dreams.
Thinking that all would be as in viewed in the movies
a loving husband, white picket fence, in movie scenes.

'Hats off to these Woman! '
For all they have and still must sacrifice!
All because of Eve's sin in a garden
Now we all must pay, sin's price!

    Thank you girlfriend because this exactly what a woman's life is and then some. Some of us have been cheated by mother nature, but we still live our lives as best as we can. This is one poem that should be published in every woman's magazine there is. Maybe even in the men's magazines too, so they can get the picture. Thank you for sharing. Live in God's good light.

    Love & hugs,

    your sister in Christ,

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
