About the Poem

I wrote this poem during my first marriage, and it was originally much longer. Something like seven or eight stanzas. So why is down to only two?

I've learned a little about marriage since those days. And as each lesson came, I was forced to abandon more and more of my original verse as Untruth. I only pray, should I marry again, I won't be left with nothing but a title...

On Marriage

One man, one woman, together.
Separate, yet always the same;
Sharing a marriage together,
And sharing more than a name.

One man, one woman, together.
It's the way we always should be;
Separate, yet always together,
A team that still can be free.

I really enjoyed this poem. It is so true. When you become married you are one, but yet at the same time you are free to be who you are. I just enjoyed it, it was short and simple and yet so true!
I love it! I was beautiful and simple
