Soft words are
always soothing,
but if you think
they make you
look weak,
ask the family
next door,
the price of
harsh words

If you think intellect
is all you need,
ask a man with intellect,
but lacking wisdom

If you think peace
is expensive,
then ask the
neighboring country
the cost of rebuilding
after the chaos
and destruction

If you think war
is worth it,
ask the heroes,
widows and children
what they paid.

Love is wonderful,
but comes at a high cost,
ask the man or woman
still sustaining it or whose
heart was once burnt or now
in pieces

If you think a
relationship that looks
smooth has no price tag,
ask those still in it.

A woman is important,
so also is a man,
none is inferior
to the other in
a relationship,
instead of trying
to take each other’s role,
simply refer to the roles
that have been given to
us by GOD and play yours
in the team,
if you think this is difficult,
then show me a man
and woman who share
your assertion
and I will show you
a relationship in chaos
and never ending
