THE NUTRIENTS OF SUBMISSION

What are the nutrients in submission
…that ignorant men feed on without getting any nourishment of love?
What are the nutrients of submission
…that uncouth men feed on to seek the doormatization of their women?
What is the alcoholic rate of submission
…that horrible men get drunk on
…losing their senses of humanity to force their others to lose selves?
What are the poor nutrients of submission?
Tell me
Tell me please
I need to know
I so need to know the addictive nutrients or monstrous poisons of submission
The only one weak men quote with its verse
…to tower above some women

II
I understood it to be a charm of love
…a man giveth
I understood it to be the reward of care a man shows
I understood it to be the thanksgiving dished out for the selfless protection of man
I understood it to be something to be earned and not forced
Something to be gained and not commanded
Something to mine with love and not demanded
But I think I understood wrong
So tell me the ingredients of submission

III
I need to know to understand the formula of narcissism
I need to know to understand why these men use it to make their women kowtow
I need to know
So tell me
Tell me the makeup of submission
The traits my kind has to give
In order to be sent to slaughter houses of coupleage
…as goats of Slavery of unhappiness, forever

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
