This poem is about the tragedy of forced marriage, a practice that should be banned world wide, but instead happens everywhere...
No crime committed,
No judge’s decision,
No lawyer defending,
Yet judgment still came upon us.
No bars seal the windows,
No locks on the door,
No guards at the fence,
My prison is known as wedlock.
No life together,
No choice presented,
No love between us,
No reason to rejoice.

|You got THAT right....sometimes selfrespect and wrong doings force marriage upon the the one who have to endure a life sentence laid upon themself.
I am the living proof of such a sentence...Oerrrrrr....but I think some sentences are worse than mine!!

|I love how you used the second lines after a sentence to reinforce the power in the statement. Very nicely done.
