Slavery

Someone help me!

Help me!

Help me!

I need to be set free from this bond

I’m not your slave for goodness sake!

I’m your wife.

 

Someone help me!

Help me!

Help me!

Linda, the same lady you took a vow with on our wedding day

Yet you treat me anyhow

And toss me around like an object.

 

Someone help me!

Help me!

Help me!

You try to control me, my feelings, and emotions

You take me to be an item to be pounced upon

Punching me has now become your daily dose.

 

Someone help me!

Help me!

Help me!

It’s not my fault that I can’t give you a male child

After all, it’s what you put in me that I’m generating

I’m only human and not a bag to be punched.

 

Someone help me!

Help me!

Help me!

I hate you now, but I can’t tell you because of tradition

Which requires wives to be subservient

You took advantage of my weakness just because I loved you.

 

Someone help me!

Help me!

Help me!
