Man To Hold Woman - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Woman wants from her man
Tolerance for her freedom,
Forbearance for wrongs
And acceptance of her minus.

More than that she wants him
Not to probe her past conducts
Not to doubt her present conducts
And not to claim her money.

This apart, she wants him
To give her bodily safety,
To guard her from her stalkers,
And to ignore her male friends.

Unless a man is a slave
To a woman in relationships
He cannot hold his woman,
Who is no longer a slave.
