Before you say I do

Before you say I do

 


Put your feet on the ground and look around
Mind asking your self if it is profound?
Will it be for mending wounds or building grounds?

Certainly, one need not be an expert
To understand marriage and its effect
Be wise, for it could bring you victory if not defeat

Many times, a lot would say it’s a practical thing to do
But, for countless couples, their “miseries” replace the sweet “I do”
By law or religion; what is this to you?

Yes, there’s a loud applause the moment you say “I do”
And a deafening “awe” once you say “ I don’t”
Nonetheless, it’s all but big decision for you to do

Reality check, there’s no such thing as last minute train
Nor a rainfall in summer that you haven’t seen
But all responsibilities in order to sustain

The glamor of an hour ceremony will simply fade away
Then the window of the promised life opens like fantasy
But on how the boat of the newlyweds sails is another story

If, there’s convenience in separation, it wouldn’t be an option
It’s just a temporary relief to an immoral calculation
Don’t ever fall into this pitfall like a demon

We know, what’s legal is not necessarily moral
What’s practical is not necessarily integral
Infidelity will just stir in a sagging spiral

Hey, are you okay?
Do you have any idea on how to raise a family
A roller coaster ride’s heeding your way

Finally, before you say I do, think for one moment
Marriage is not a requirement
It is a life-time commitment!
