Men

They hail you as their morning star
Because you are the way you are.
If you return the sentiment,
They'll try to make you different;
And once they have you, safe and sound,
They want to change you all around.
Your moods and ways they put a curse on;
They'd make of you another person.
They cannot let you go your gait;
They influence and educate.
They'd alter all that they admired.
They make me sick, they make me tired.

What is true with men is true with women always think to change their chosen They can't leave well enough alone then wonder why we've up and gone.
It is hard to come to grips with reality when you're in love, you'll do anything for that person..sometimes you need to take a look at yourselves and make sure no one is taking away your independence..it makes me wonder..Is there such thing as a good man? (One that wants you to rise up instead of being submissive? or is it us women who subject ourselves to this treatment?)
