Not On Your Terms

in #poem10 months ago (edited)


Leave your pride and stubbornness at the door
No one wants to see it on this floor
A lot of people don't understand what it means
To be one with another person
They want to do things their own way
They think marriage is for all the play
If that's it, your father's house you could have stayed
This is why marriage is for the matured minds
Not someone who goes into it all blind
You can't do things on your own terms
Expecting the other person to roll over
You don't expect to recreate the atmosphere
You had while growing up in your marriage
If you can't stand the heat, leave the kitchen
Marriage is a call to a life of sacrifice
This isn't your father's house, grow up

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
