When Women Hurt - Poem by Shirley Morgan

Why do women hurt, God say we all come from dirt. The big question that has been in existence
since the beginning of time. Why Womens' hurt
each other. It appears that women have been
confused since Abraham's days. Remember
when Sarah could'nt bare a child? She asked
the bondwoman(Haggar) to have her man and her child'
She told the woman to sleep with her man
Women are so silly. She had the man and
the land. And after she got what she wanted
she wanted to band them. She threw Haggar and her stepson Issac out.
Oh yes women have hurt each
other since the beginning of time.
Today this would be called chid abuse.
Today women continue to treat each other like bond women
and hurt each other.

    Your message is so true, women do hurt one another, because of jealousy, insecurity and meanness. Why we do it through gossip and rumor, trying to tear down another is beyond my thinking. Your poem is poignant and revealing. Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
