Man and Woman

Man is like a desert without the rain of a woman.
Nothing can be born and grown without her nourishment.
She is a life-giving river that gives and loves without holding anything back.
And without her water, man would walk around aimlessly,
feeling incomplete and hollow like an empty well.
The longer he roams, the deeper the hole within his soul expands,
growing bigger and bigger like a barren tree whose branches resemble the cracks on hard, dry soil.
And he shall continue to feel incomplete and malnourished,
until – he encounters a godly woman, to show him life
and quench his thirst.
