you struggle to have in your life and at your home
is threatened by something you're not responsible for
yet can hardly avoid?
what can you do when you were told never to show your face at a place again
- through no fault of your own let me tell you, other than being married to
and having a good relationship with a certain man -
and then being treated as if nothing had happened?
are you supposed to forget everything
and risk a possible attack out of the blue
-sometimes I feel a simple 'hello' could be misunderstood -
in order to keep the tranquillity you have worked so hard for?
are you supposed to put up with everything
and count the days and hours before you leave
and find shelter in your own family
(nuclear and extended)?
