SUNSHINE THROUGH THE CLOUDS WITH RAIN

SUNSHINE THROUGH THE CLOUDS WITH RAIN

 

His wife says that few if any men

Would do what he does for her once again…

He wishes that she

Would stop with that creed,

For manhood continues to rend.

Sometimes she seems to say

That a real man wouldn’t act this way…

Which leaves him confused,

Feeling abused

When she says she’s glad he’s this way!

His struggle inside is fierce,

His heart is frequently pierced…

With feelings that flow

With nowhere to go,

No one with whom to express fears.

He has pictures of girls he doesn’t know,

And he knows these have to go….

His focus in life

Is on God and wife,

Anyone else, his progress slows.

One reason he dropped YAHOO,*

Was being faced with what he didn’t want to do…

Having “singles” ads

On his e-mail page, scads

Of temptations of which he was through,

This personal struggle while married

Won’t stop until he’s buried…

The privilege paid

By a covenant made,

And long-standing hope still carried.

 

—J. Caswell

*YAHOO—Another computer search engine.
