Because of men because of women

Because of men because of women

Because of women, the world is what it is.

Remove women from the world, and the world will automatically become different.

We can say the same thing about men.

It is because of men that the world is the way it is.

By some miracle, remove men from the earth, and the world will be completely different.

Men need women and women need men.

The world needs women; the world needs men.

Poor men!

I say poor you men!
I feel for you;
You’re not poor
Because you lack money;
You are not poor
Because you lack
Earthly property,
You are not poor
Because you lack wisdom,
Knowledge or understanding;
Because in great abundance
You possess each one of them;
You are poor
Because you suffer
More than you can say;
So much you sacrifice
For others;
Kids, spouse and others;
You do all you can
To see them grow;
To see them succeed;
But once they’re fine,
They forget and even deny
You ever did a thing;
And sadly about you,
Nobody cares
Your time is over;
You’re a nuisance;
A liability no longer an asset;
If you aren’t careful,
You become lonely;
And end miserable.
That is the fate of men.
Yes, poor men.
You suffer even in
The hands of other men;
And closest ones to you.

Is being a woman equivalent to being a house-help?

What role are women and girls playing in their homes especially in third world countries? Are they supposed to be slaves in their own homes just because they are women?

This is the issue which we look at in an upcoming post. Watch out for it. Don’t miss it.

Together, let’s look at the place of women and girls as well as boys and men in today’s world especially in third world countries.

What is best to conquer?

If you take delight
In conquering,
Let me tell you
What’s best to conquer;
And what not to conquer;
And what’s best to come.
Don’t conquer women,
Some men spend their lives
Conquering women;
That is not what
You should conquer.
Don’t conquer men;
Can you guess?
Millions of women are out
Today trying to
Conquer men;
Another bad choice
Of what to conquer.
Don’t conquer money;
Money may not be bad
But can be dangerous;
Before you open your eyes,
You are in ruins;
If it is not how you
Search for it,
That ruins you,
It is how you use it.
Don’t conquer power.
Power corrupts;
And can destroy you
Faster than you imagine.
If you must conquer power,
Be careful how you do it,
Lest you burn your fingers.
Don’t conquer fame;
Or stardom;
Conquer hearts;
Conquer people with love;
God wants us to conquer
The world with love;
Conquer the hearts
Of fellow human beings
Not for selfish reasons
But for selfless reasons.
Conquer the heart of God.

Men and women

As long as we live, we will always talk about the relationship between man and woman. I learned as I grew up that before you go into a race with a woman, you must weigh your chances of success very well. This does not mean that a man cannot defeat a woman in a race, but that it is often very hard. I really don’t know if this is true. That is why I would like to hear what you think.

I was also taught, when I was young, that a man who takes his hand and hits his wife is not qualified to call her wife. My response is, while I agree, I say some women are not easy. They tempt their spouses to consider hitting them from time to time. Anyway, I have never considered hitting my spouse. What is your take on this?

Still talking about women, it looks clear that if women controlled their tongues better, they would have fewer problems with their husbands. On the other hand, if men showed more love and fidelity to their wives, there would be fewer problems between them.
