To buy peace


I don’t find a charming woman
Who’s equally a warming one.
I don’t find a domineering one
Who’s as well a feminine one.
Women of intelligence too
Are found far from amenable;
Women of wealthy parents
Are found wanting compassion.
I was settled with a woman,
Who’s none of these, and bought peace.

    Every woman has atleast one predominant trait...that moulds her persona....in that way its left to men to chose the one with the character they like! (Report) Reply
