Treasure Island

Asser Mattar

(1977- / Alexandria, Egypt)

What women want...

You hate me when I'm happy
You hate me when I'm sad
You hate me when I'm calm
And also when I get mad

You hate me when I'm gloomy
You hate me when I'm joking
You hate the men who smoke
And you hate me for not smoking

You hate me when I'm silent
You hate me when I talk
Even before I speak
You act as if I spoke

You hate the way I drive
You hate the way I walk
You hate me when I'm rich
You hate me when I'm broke

You hate me when I laugh
You'll hate me if I cry
Now you hate that I'm alive
You'll hate me when I die

You hate when I appear
You hate it when I hide
You hate me when I'm near
Yet you want me by your side

You hate me coz I'm thin
And you'd hate me if I'm fat
For you think I'm made of tin
I'm your worthless doormat

You're asking me to change
And even if I do
I know I'll find myself
Still not good enough for you

Well, let me tell you baby
A fact that may seem new
I feel, I breathe, I love
We, men, are humans too

So please try to accept me
And forgive me or forget
Don't try to customize me
What you see is what you get

You're still planning to change me
Even though you know you won't
Deep inside you, you're unable
To achieve what women want

    Nobody ever should attempt to change anyone - we all are who we are...strong foundation of any relationship is made of mutual acceptance and understanding...
    and communication that always shows what is true...
    What women want? I think everybody is different...some might want your money and car...some might need you just for sex...others might want to make you their slave and servant for ever...and there might be some out there who just want to be independent... (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

Far south the lift,
