That she is created from his rib.
She believes she is equal, superior, more intelligent, stronger, active and mindful.
He can not crush her identity, nor can she be oppressed by,
Any of the stereotypes devised by man to influence their ego.
Her strong qualities are not suppressed,
Even if her weakness are exposed and exploited.
None of her in-laws can push her to the shell,
Scraping her of her rights as the mother of her home.
He can’t force her…
To be a devotee of what her faith does not agree with.
Yet, though he is busy, she knows when to interrupts.
She is not supposed to labor several hours
Doing household jobs all day and night long.
When their baby cries at ‘three’ in the morning
It doesn’t necessary mean she alone must get up and attend to it.
By matual agreement, she does the cleaning,
He does the washing,
She irons on Friday night,
He supports her to prepare the meal at weekends,
And together, they shop for the family.
God fearing, romantic, and loves children.
If they don’t have a ride, they can walk hand in hand from anywhere.
When they do, either of them can drive the kids from school,
Attend Church and birthday parties.
While he is away…
On a business trip or writing a story or poem.
She believes in him and prays for his success.
She is his most severe critic,
at the same time very protective!
‘In one of the characters of his story,
He pictures a lady having a busy day in her air-conditioned office,
With thick carpets and plush chairs.
On her door were inscribed: ‘Mrs. Writer XYZ.’
She can come from work…
Plop on the couch and watch a ‘current affairs’ show on TV.
or carry her baby in her arms.
She is very proud about their ‘little’ home and their ‘child’.
At interval, she’d checks him inside his study room and offers him a drink.
She whispers to him: “Sweet heart, I love you just the way you are.”
And glory to the Lord!
He has no cause not to believe her.
They both talk about how their day was.
She is submissive and he respects her,
And treats her as his ‘one and only princess’.
She doesn’t pretend to be interested in his work,
Should she be suspicious about any of his dealing?
She has no fear in voicing out her mind.
And |finally, this is it…
She is not to be ‘possessed’ with ‘the spirit of Jezebel’,
‘That all she ever does is talk for hours on the phone
with other house wives, or gossip over the fence
or cry over every soap opera on TV Africa.
