A Poem by costa siwale
"

a writing about women

"
                                    They say we broke the balance in heaven and earth
                                      that the serpent of lies with us! bred mankind's death..
we are seen as forgers of destruction
condemned! daughters of deception..
raped of our innocence by a bitter world
caged to subservience by the ideas they yield..
our symbol, limited to sexuality and toil
while they strangle us, lust us and lay us in the soil..
they say a lot of things
but from me to you, you are this world's everything..

wow, i liked this one when i started reading it i initially thought it was written by a woman and based on the title as well, figured its literally her to her, but the fact that you are actually a man just blew me away even more, well written Costa and it speaks a truth that most people deny or simply ignore, i liked it a lot hey, it shows so much depth and that you thought it through before you put the words down,

You defined the life in a very precised manner. I feel you're very right at your last line but from me to you, you are this world's everything..

We only break the balance if we as humans took too much of a good thing or too much of a bad thing of everything. I really do like the biblical reference you did in this piece. It is a very nice offering my friend.

Thank you very much for your comment Pax..
I cannot choose any favorite line because all are excellent. You captured the essence of Eve and her daughters beautifully. And not much has changed for women even today... I admire you further because you did it being a man. Thanks a lot for this write!

I believe woman need to be appreciated and love. I will never understand abuse. Women are our Grandmothers, mothers, sisters and daughters. Thank you for sharing the thought provoking poetry. A outstanding poem.
