The world we live in, We stay in this abusive relationship becaue we think there's no way out - since divorce is taboo., and some parents are so concerned about their family reputation in the society, resulting couples to continue staying in a marriage they detest. These unaccepting parents, molded their children mentality to think life is war. They shaped certain dignity and prototype that stab hopes, and make their kids crumble emotionally, struggling with personal happiness versus maintaining their parents respect and fame for their justice from society judgement. A man and woman may get hitched in a lavish wedding and may seem to be the happiest people on earth but what happens after, is unknown. Tragic but this is a bitter truth facts of our girls ( especially in south-east Asia) versus society, that create tension at times appearing to conform to mainstream values, at other times resisting them. Raising questions, Will you sacrifice your happiness for your parents' happiness? Or should we live for our own?
When you are in an abusive relationship, leaving permanently just doesn’t seem like an option. This life seems eccentric, Their ways might seem a bit too bizarre, But maybe that's how the people who really love us behave! And so I caress the pain instead, as I push it to the corner with the rest of emotions that have gone unattended. Since, I learned love through the smell of bourbon , I learned love through abandonment. And when someone would ask about the bruises I would act surprised because I didn’t know my body was still reacting to it when my mind wasn’t. Knowing, I am left to die here. with barren hearts No blood to pour, no tears to shed. Just hollow, alien creatures With nothing to give. Well darling, If you think a bit about me, tonight In between your tequilla, vodka or malt, could you please sing me a lament lullaby to drown the silence and cloud the disguise And in the morning, I promise to find myself some superglue, to hold together your broken promises and to once again take your side...
For I am A good wife, submissive & devoted, An amazing daughter, obedient and polite.
