Tradition says a man can marry
As many women as he can care for
On the condition that he loves them equally
How possible is it to love four different women the same way?
When even the love a mother has for
Her children are different ?
How possible is it for me
To share my husband with another woman?
To love and live in peace with my rival?
Peace may reign amongst our children
Because they share a father
But what about we women, who share a husband?
Come to think of it in all honesty
Not all days are really bad
Some days are really good
As our children enjoy many mothers
And we can be our sisters’ keepers
But when we remember, the fact that
He had married another because the other was not good enough
Or the thought that when he was married to one of us
He was courting the other without our knowledge
Which was actually being unfaithful to the marriage vows
How are we supposed to love each other without grudges or bias?
So maybe it is a state of mind,
A state of mind or belief that women are expected to
Understand and accept that women can share one man
Because men are physically equipped
And women emotionally equipped
It could be true that
One woman is never enough for one man,
As variety is the spice of life
It would be interesting to turn tables
To see how a man reacts to the thought of sharing
His beloved with other men
Would he be understanding and generous too?
And consider the honest love the other men
Have for his woman as tradition advices us to?
I would love to see the look
On his face
At the thought of sharing
