Now I ask, with partial knowledge
Why do some women depend on this:
Abuse comes their way, and then
They stay as if all were bliss...
As a man I must say this one thing
Relations make us who we are
And with thoughts of the "in between"
Abuse is NOT love BY FAR!
There are issues there on BOTH sides
He must overcome his very own;
She defines when it's truly love;
Only after the fact can either have grown.
Black and white is the rigid man
Based on all he has learned to survive
And the gray is the loving heart
That a woman understands as alive
I've no answer to this dilemma
That is frequently presented to me
Except one, know yourself all the way
That yourself you may always be.
And if you do know yourself,
For to his and her own, be each
That the power of love may prevail
To the other you'll ever teach.
Author's Notes: Hell, I don't know. Straight men admire me, and straight women love me. Is that the answer? I see both sides. Why can't both sides see each other? There are some things I just can't teach. Gotta learn some things on their own. Maybe one function I have in this life is to just listen. Saying what I believe is never enough, until they figure it out on their own.
For two people, a man and a woman. If the man hits her again, I'll show him what it feels like to be hit. If the woman accepts being hit again, I'll slap her myself. Either way, no solution seems to be reached. And I won't hurt either of them, but I am not an adept as preventing anyone from hurting themselves. Sometimes they seem to want it. I've had it between these two. Either learn and adapt, or count me out. I've reached a limit. And I wonder, will they?
