Analysis of What speak those tommorrows

Beso Beso 1972 (United States)



What shall marriage bring us
Lovers can be selfish and cruel
I wish to be neither to you
I wish to be caring and understanding
Never neglecting your need or ego
As long as my health shall substain me
I shall be as caring and trustworthy
as a woman could wish to be?

Than my love; as your  husband
Will I not be used or coaxed
Into a fight for the entertainment
Of your freinds.
Will you submit to me as long as
You are healthy
Not allowing greed, envy, or spiteful
Needs to have me a speckical
In my own relationship
I wish never to be alone and
dumbfounded, because someone
outside our marriage has made me
a fifth wheel?

About this poem

What words speak you as mine. What vanities, envies, and ego's Shall have us, strange and unwelcomed, in our own relationship.
