Men are more equal than women
“All humans are equal, man and woman alike. But men are more equal.”
I try to do right, but it’s hard not doing me.
I try to do better than the society expects, but I realize I’m fighting a fast losing battle. I can only stay monogamous for so long.
My friends aren’t, Father isn’t and Grandpa wasn’t. I’m trying not to notice other delights; my control is tethering away. The urge to take a dip from the cookie jar is becoming unbearable. I’m going to cheat on her soon.
“You men are all the ‘same’, you never stay in one place. Once you get what you are looking for, it’s on to the next one”, these are the words she tried using to resist my advances.
My conscience is pricking at me; I’ve been trying hard for so long to be faithful. I’m not going to be able to stop myself from derailing the next time temptation knocks. I remember a conversation we once had, back then when we could stay up all night, listening to each other.
“I wish the world was different, that all human are truly equal. Men and women would be treated to the same standard, and a girl wouldn’t have to be sitting around waiting for the next boy, to come break her heart”
I now understand clearly, what she was feeling, talking about that night. Being my normal self conceited self, I took it back then as another way I was paying for her ex mistakes. I guess the next guy will have to pay for mine.
Breaking up with her is going to be a tricky business. But it’s something I need to do (before I eventually slip). I’ve got no desire to double up on her, she deserves better than that (even better than me). Telling her the real reason why is only going to confirm what she has been saying all along, instead, I’m going to do it over some lame-ass reason.
“All humans are equal, man and woman alike, it’s the basis on which all constitutions are written. It’s the greatest phrase of continuing importance to any society”, I had told her.
Pathetic lie, this has turned out to be. I’m going to move on to another girl, and maybe not be so faithful to her. Then I’m going to move on to another, then another, then another…. Until I finally settle down. Nuptial vows aren’t gonna guarantee that I’d stop dibbling around.
She’s going to sit quietly -as society expects of her, waiting and screening until she finds the ‘next’ one, who shows the potential to be that ‘special one’ (we are all hoping to find someday). He might turn out to be better, or another ‘loser’ like I am.
“The society has no place for a woman who approaches sex the way a man does. If a girl sleeps with A, then B, and then C, just to satisfy her sexual urges, she’s going to be call a slut and stigmatized by society” – she had also said.
So #GoFigure, she’s going to try curtailing her basial urges during the wait and may end up with another ‘loser’, just to satisfy them. That’s why she settled for me. Let’s hope she doesn’t settle for her husband also.
There you go, one more unsolved mystery in our world today.
As also with the owner of this blog, I like to sample. My ideas are formed from a word, line(s) or idea from other people stories and songs. Miss shar-rone’s aim was met, her write-up got me thinking.
Thanks Mafaba, for having me out here.
