“Oh tell the world,
they would never believe I almost killed you.”
I can’t tell anyone because
I am woman and I need to take all in
I am to endure the torture because
I am to keep my home
What would people say
if they hear you left him?
Why do you want to be a shame to the family?
Who would want a woman who has given birth?
Remember if I die
he would marry another without blame or guilt
And hell, if I kill him,
I will be killed too.
Should I stay to put a nail to my coffin?
