Nuptial Vows For Girls



Now that you have entered my life,

As a new bride,as my darling wife,

Certain social obligation have to follow,

If  matrimony is to be happy and mellow.


That carefree laughter ringing around,

Smiles and cheer that you spread around,

As a maiden when you were not mine,

I will ignore as your childhood crimes.


Bright ideas that could change the world,

Daring and courage you showed everywhere,

Why do you think that the girls should dream!

They are meant to listen and not to scream.


I will bind you with the shackles of love,

In a golden cage an innocent dove,

No more try to use your wings to fly,

For brides appear lovely ,demure and shy.

Forget that you are human any more,

Just be my shadow chaste and pure,

From now onwards I will your master be,

Forget that you were casual and free.


What do you think?

  1. Language and discourse of possession, Sarita Khullar, you have very beautifully hit the nail on the head. I’m amazed at the power language has in convincing women to be duty bound.

    When will be break from this fetter!
