The Widow



She is scorned and looked down at
Always disgraced and stigmatized
Treated as a worthless woman
Who failed to save her husband’s life

Never invited to religious events
And often shunned from social life
Her presence considered inauspicious
Isolated, with no one to hear her cries

She has so much to share and say
But her views are just not heard
So she stays a sad and lonely figure
And swallows back all her words

They treat her shabbily forever
And restrict and confine her life
All through this they calmly forget
That she is still very much alive
