Agony of a widow

Waking up being lonely

Soliloquizing in the language of her ownImage result for agony

After been accused of the murder

Of her beloved

She was forced to sing dirges

Of the sins she never committed

She is ostracized, castigated and molested

 

She moans to her beloved

In the pains of the suffering:

Are you asleep? Where have you been?

How is heaven? Still got a space there?

Her wails and tears fill up the basin

 

She faces the double suffering

When she insists on not picking a new cap

She remains gallant despite the hard times

She is ready to face more tortures

For the sake of her love
