A Marriage


I’ve always shunned the company of humans
Yet, there’s a basic need for procreation
So I looked and believe I’ve found a woman
Just perfect to bear my next generation

A decade have passed and seven years
From us have sprung a brood of four
Many a happy times and many a tears
At times I think we should’ve had more

Then, there were times when my eyes wander
Lusting after distractions, in one form or another
To temptations of the flesh I wish to surrender
To turn a deaf ear to my conscience’s whispers

But, to hurt these people, I don’t fancy
I can never hurt my children and wife
Thus, my amoral deeds remain a fantasy
Maybe I can indulge on it in my after life

I love my family don’t get me wrong
O, how they’ve grown, my little ones
And, I pray this marriage will last my life long
But, I swear I’ll not attempt marriage more than once...

  1. Sam,
    Great Poem - how about this:
    When all else fails in life
    I thank Allah for the support of my wife
    My children are the reasons for the future
    But at times I question whether they are sure
    That the world will still exists after all the pollution.

  2. Thanks Joe... My son once asked me, "Do you think I'll ever become an adult?"

    I asked why do you ask?

    He said, "I don't think I'll have a chance to be an adult... I think the world will be destroyed, before I become an adult....."

    I almost cried...
