The Story of Marriage


The union of two living creatures
never ever be said and done
As things come and things gone
the world values it by any measures

Some said marriage is a grace
part of life we need to embrace
God’s gift for us to contemplate
the art of living by the rules of fate

Some said marriage is an image
keeping people in a huge cage
where freedom is scattered and withered
and all the regrets are wondered

Some said marriage is a phase
forcing us to fight against each case
and fly around like a bewildered dove
trapped in what so call the game of love

All of us dream of a happy marriage
like the one in princess stories
But life is not a fairy tale
logic and truth we must inhale
Bitter sweet come in one package
marriage rises challenge in every age

Yet each of us can form a story
with love, tender, and laughter
which will evolve in no worry
towards a happy ever after

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
