Modern Matrimony - Poem by Gwendolyn Anderson

Modern Marriage
Ha, a joke
people getting married unequally yoked
No reason, No love
just filling a void, that can't be filled
especially by a marriage soon to end

You must be happy from within
look beyond that handsome face
And seductive grin,
false promises
And untold truths

Get into that genealogy,
to find out, what you can not see
especially, if planning to conceive

That divine soul mate
embodies things like these
Untouchable friendships, a wonderful heart,
trust and loyalty
Being encouraged and open
to each others wishes

Know the person you're pursuing
Mind, where is it? where's it been?
where's it going, do you fit in?
Their body, loved and respected
Soul, filled with God, shines through,
no words at all

Remember, marriage is a serious bond,
that should only be shared by two people in
Love
