Women are different from men, who find them difficult to understand

It’s so common that spouses,
Even though married for long,
Often find they’re not able
To quite smoothly pull along.

Though there may be so many
Reasons for marital strife,
One is, surely, the husband
Cannot understand his wife!

Women’s feelings are often
An enigma for the men!
They just cannot understand
Why so fickle are women.

Why they often get depressed,
And harbour many fears?
Why they are prone to outbursts?
Why they often shed tears?

Why they think it is a shame,
If they are not beautiful?
Why their dress must be perfect?
Why fashionless is sinful?

Men are for fundamentals,
For their basic body needs.
But in womanly thinking,
The emotion supersedes!
