Don’t Do It!

Don’t Do It!

No matter how strong you are
it is easy to slip into a man’s shadow


A desire to please and pander
May be your ultimate downfall
Some men will relish it and some will resent it
But they will take it anyway
You will be joyful in your nurturing 
Undeniably ecstatic in your union
Fussing and caring for your man
Then sure enough, before one can blink an eye
You have disappeared
Sucked into oblivion
Unnoticed, unheard and unknown

    Ominous words. But yes, many people lose their identity and fall in the shadow of their partners.
