They stand for all the most beautiful, valuable aspects of life long gone,
Usually splendid and elegant people, the two sisters were,
now simply regarded as utensils of male egos that represent all those slaughtered in the given name of respect.
Now representing Society’s curse on young children forced out by desperation into a life of prostitution and slavery.
Curses fathers and husbands have created, the two sisters.
Homes have become places of eternal misery for the two sisters.
In every cry of every woman,
In every child’s cry of fear being forced to fake alive a smile every day of her life.
Is a loud commanding sound that cannot be shut
the colour of night paints a lion’s roar ahead of killing its prey. The two sisters.
Their dribble of blood is simply a water spill,
their tears ooze for mercy till the sky brightens
establishment of family is an application of death in life
happy aspects of life are tinted creating a sense that respect is a pain that pounds at heart..
The two sisters are the mothers,the sisters and the daughters forced out of the homes by desperation into a life of prostitution and poverty . Cursed by their fathers and husbands in the given name of respect.
What don’t they do right?
When do they let US down?
Yet every morning we walk away from their tears!
YET ONLY GOD KNOWS WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR? ALL IN THE GIVEN NAME OF RESPECT!
