ENGAGED TO A BULLY

Years of restrictions, discomfort and purposeless monotony.

Days of sacrifice, Night of terror and unending agony.

Spending the money I do not have just to get a customized spectacle I do not really need(certificate).

Investment of energy, time and resources just to harvest mere weeds .

Yeah.. I prepared,.. Prepared to be part of an amazing Symphony.

To my greatest bewilderment, I am confronted with ‘endless’ cacophony.

Why should I spend all years running from Zero to five(CGPA)?

Why should I be restless like bees hovering outside their hives?

I love to be asked about what I know .

But you hate to discuss about what I know .

How I love to flaunt my lofty knowledge .

But you yell “this ain’t high school, this is a college!”

What I fancied most is what you admire the least.

I am playing my part but you are playing the beast.

You derive unquenchable joy in causing me pain .

I still wonder, how knavery yield you gains .

You deduce pleasure in exposing my ignorance.

When I ask questions, you label it arrogance

You cover my strengths and amplify my errors

You suffocate my peace and empower my terrors

Why teach me what I find it difficult to believe?

I pretend to listen and my attention you can’t receive.

Evolution, hibernation, aestivation and other myths that bully my imaginations

I hope there is more to live for because frustration is ripening to depression

Babe, trying to make me feel like a dunce is laughable

Why can’t you let me go exploit where I capable?

Why do you judge a lion by its ability to fly ?

Why taking my ship to the railroad and expect it to smoothly ply?

Hey Mr Bully, you cannot continue to turn the current of my life.

For once, I have chosen to lead my life.

I will ‘do me’ because pleasing you is getting too Laborious.

Doing what I am born to do is the easiest way to be victorious.

  1. I received a message on Facebook this morning from a man who is suffering in secret. He is part of a large-but-invisible fraternity to which he never wanted to be a member. He’s among the countless men who feel bullied or abused by their wives.
