Drawn from experiences you bear
Men are not one to care, for strength in their women's demear
weaker ***, we are not !
having to be able to stand on the spot
Men have muscles ! we have brains
they hold strong ! we love fierce
Finding a man, we help him to build his life, his will
we toil for years, trying to bond
developing patterns as we travel along
Making our own history, hoping it last
through tribulations of fighting, cheating - aghast !
Life is good, you love; you laugh;
taking care of your household, forgiving the past
You have dreams of a nice, fine life
so, you work hard, building bridges; making cakes; washing;
cleaning; loving -
Then, out of the blue, he looks at you
It's not the same, what a shame ...
No more communications; no dinners set;
no more sleeping together - nothing,
to offset, the love or potential that you get
when there is love or respect
You fight, with all you have
this is the man you gave your heart ...
he is dead set, because of another
young, fresh, no regrets
It was tough, you burned, yearned
got depressed; fought the tears
the demons on your chest
Its been a year; long, hard year
he's set to go
so, you pick up your skirt
head for the door
