These are
a couple of lines
for YOU
needless to say your name
you know WHO

It's not of your business THOUGH
but I know it will reach you
so better read BELOW

Same as YOU
I am an individual, TOO
you might have your STRATEGY
to check upon and control ME

But I got my PRIVACY
living my life independant and FREE
without you supervising ME
I am not your PROPERTY

Better accept the FACT
consider before you ACT
We are sharing our LIFE
I am still being called your WIFE

But the binding is getting LOOSE
by now I am able to CHOOSE
between a life called YOU and ME
or being independant and FREE

I will stay around DUE
to our children and YOU
as long as you grant ME
even if it HURTS
the freedom of
spirit, dreams and WORDS

Don’t always doubt everything I SAY
I cannot prove my truthfulness
one day I MAY

Until then go on with your LIFE
don’t cut each phrase or word of mine with a KNIFE
and try to understand and LEARN
even if we YEARN

We can NEVER force feelings and LOVE
but we can always pray to the one
who helps us from ABOVE
to give us strenght, hope and EASE
for a life in happiness and PEACE

oh my, Amira! so much that isn't right...that's painful..jumps out to the reader..behind your bid for self-assertion lies a lot of pain...not to be trusted, verbal accusations and defenses...the will to go on, but the need to carve out your own space filled with rights...I had better quit here, but I applaud you for this strong show defiance and the cautionary.

Wishing you all the best,
