This Eternal Marriage

This eternal marriage
It is one of force, of no choice
One of irresistible destiny
How can we get divorced forever?

This eternal marriage
One gets into long before birth
No escape route from it, no alternative
How can we get divorced forever?

This eternal marriage
Can never be denied, no fugitives
Unborn, born, young, old, man, woman
There is no selection when time comes
How can we get divorced forever?

This eternal marriage
The undeniable beckon of the husband
During the day, the night, at any time
Medical technologies notwithstanding
How can we get divorced forever?

This eternal marriage
It is indeed the mother of all sufferings
The river of tears never run dry
The broken hearts never get mended
The gaps of those called are never refilled
How can we get divorced from this cruel marriage?

    Hi Isaac
    This poem reminds me of something very hard that I have experienced once and again.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
