Searching - Poem by macaulay akinbami

He is not your husband
Who undresses you before the alter
And bid you follow the path of lust assuming love
It is not the alter that determines a beginning,
But the day of accord in heart and minds
The alter is the public show of the hidden intentions.

Do you find in her a talkative?
An imposing personality,
A high look,
A presumptuousness,
Never listening,
Never wrong,
Never apologetic,
Then, run.
For she is not your wife if you are true at heart.

Always requesting,
But never delivers
Intolerant, vindictive, spiteful.
Like a brother of blood
As was told in tales of our innocence,
Not a good friend
Never can be
As pride and ego ruin faster than barrel
So will arrogance distort.

If he is a friend
So true,
A wife
With fidelity
A husband with commitment
Let him in.
