Writings On The Wall

Day after day
Night after night
He praised the streets and its company
More than the value onlookers saw in his family
He was a young man reaching his thirties
With a doctors degree
Whose concept of marriage
Didn’t matter
Whether she aches inside or not
He would still make her heart cry in hopelessness

He was miles away when she needed him to be her anchor
Cruising with lady friends,
Splashing every single cent
He earned on temporary pleasures
And constantly forgetting to put his experiences into practice

He kept on walking conceitedly on the writings written on the wall
As if the sun never gives birth to a brand new tomorrow
The built-up of acute anger
Gradually shaped her notion, values and ideology
About staying loyal and submissive
To her other half

So night after night the tables turned
As she cared less about making
Her drifted soul mate feel appreciated
Soon enough those cuisine delicacies vanished
That’s when abrupt changes in behavior crept in the house
With violent threats and atrocities

Broken plates and windows
Facial scars
Neighbor’s intervention
Brought in noises of police sirens
A house of peace had become a chaos city
More like Genesis eighteen verse twenty

Broken vows
Became so hard to renew
At times peace was attained but freedom
Was no longer in peace with everyday treaty peace

Years went on
As they tried to heal the wounds and scars
But maybe it was too late
For time to take its prime role.
She packed her bags and left
And up to now she can’t be found!

It takes commitment love and forgiveness
To walk into a marriage and remain honest
Even under the most difficult circumstances
Much of what we do
Reflects the love we claim to have for our partners


We came into existence alone
To be surrounded by imperfect humans
Whose struggle is to give an unconditional love

I would like to send a message to all married man out there:
Safeguard your marriages
Safeguard your marriages
Safeguard your marriages! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
