FOR MAN RELATED TO WOMAN


If I am to be under my father's rule
As a child and teenager
Where is my good father to
Teach me kindness?

If I am to be under my husband's rule
As a wife and mother
Where is my good husband to
Teach me of love?

If I am to be under my son's rule
As a grandmother and senior
Where is my good son to
Teach me humanity?

If I am to be under my God's rule
As a spirit in heaven
Where is my good God to
Teach me eternity?

Calling on you father
Calling on you husband
Calling on you sons
Calling on you God

My father neglected and sexually abused me
My husband lied to me and financially used me
My sons have their own wives to take care of
My God has taught me in his eternity there's love

Still I look for a good father
Still I look for a good husband
Still I look to my sons for protection
Still I look to my God for my correction

My father died when I was twenty five
My husband parted I resented his laziness
My sons work their own lives
My God is there at all times

Still I crave an affectionate dad
Still I crave a loving husband
Still I know my sons will help me
Still I feel my God forever

If men want women to submit joyously
If men want women to be at their feet
If men want women's respect
If God wants women's praises

Then love your little girls
Then love your woman wives
Then love your mothers sons
Then God your will is done.
