Don't Stoop

I read my friend's poem
addressed to her husband
I accept you the way you are
with your anger and shortcomings
No need to change yourself
I will adjust myself
and make life compatible
I wanted to tell her
Your submissive attitude
and undue devotion to him
will spoil him further
By stooping to his demands
you can never satisfy him
You are boosting his ego
and one day he will
behave like your master
And your identify will be lost
Assert yourself, be yourself
Get respect you give him
