the palm of your hand.

Men and women alternately love and fight each other--a reconciliatory perspective

“No, don’t be fooled by dove like eyes,
Nor by innocent looks on face.
The intentions behind those looks,
Are difficult to ever trace.

Those tender lips, like two rose buds,
From which lovely whispers come out,
Conceal the vilest pricks and barbs,
That can from them endlessly spout.

Those inviting gestures can be
The bait before pouncing upon
The man who is clueless about
What a woman’s mind is set on”.

“Men, you are rough and crude creatures,
Too proud of brute force and muscle.
You think that you can bulldoze through
Any argument or tussle.

Born of woman, brought up by her,
Ungrateful you are to woman.
Despite this, out of her kindness,
She tries to love you as she can.”

Who is the sinner, or the sinned?
Who is the wronged, who commits wrong?
Why get into such argument?
Why not together love along?

Both are sons and daughters of God,
Let us to Him all surrender.
Why try to tell Him that he did
By making us did a blunder?
