All she wants is to be treated as
One of them, part of them,
Adjusting with
Husband and in-laws,
Their ways, tastes, values,
Like liquid taking shape of the vessel

Alas she lost her own identity

Often she is made to wonder
If she is a part of them
Or like liquid that can be emptied
.....And replaced?

OSI Prompt : Liquid

A common problem excellently expressed.

You describe trying to fit in and being wanted very well. Almost like the new bride and her new family. Hopefully not emptied out in the end.

Maggie Grace said...

Such deep and insecure thoughts expressed here.

Nicely written in the bride's viewpoint, Harshad. I hate it that liquid emptying thoughts are in her mind.

Here is hoping for her sake that these thoughts can go away.

This is gripping. In-laws have to power to kill off young, vulnerable life.

What a beutiful way to express the truth that has always been known but never accepted...hopefully the coming generation will change things..

I was throughout under impression that I had linked to OSI and alas, today I saw I hadn; did...because otherwise it would have been first time since I started that I would have missed..OSI..
