I am not a domestic!
but it seems I have to become one
to stay in this relationship.
You cannot take me as I am
so you are moulding me into what you want me to be
taking away my identity
taking away my individuality.
Take me as I am
you will not
so I must cook and clean and wash the clothes
rake the yard and scrub the pots
a humble servant I must become
for you, your friends and all thy kingdom come!
I must be mother I must be lover
always smiling never complaining
while inside my heart
is aching, breaking.
I must do as you say and not as I feel
or on the cold concrete I will sleep
ALL my duties without opinion I must perform
to keep you happy, smiling and calm.
I am human
I am woman
to be respected
not abused, used, and then rejected
You are the man
so you must be strong
BUT I MUST BE STRONGER STILL
because you're trying to break my spirit
and shatter my will
So although I am sad
and full of anger
I will not hurt you
I will not harm you
I will only love you...until I leave you.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
