Two Sisters

They were Two Sisters all alone
Afraid to play..not able to roam
Their brothers held a heavy hand
From childhood they were truly banned
They resembled so much..almost twins
But in their young life they had no wins
Their brothers had a misconception
That women were slaves..terrible preception
They washed and ironed and did the chores
Always left behind locked doors
Their brothers decided they should mold
These girls lives so they did what they were told
Their mother had absolutely no say
She worked hard and washed clothes for pay
The girls eventually married and started lives
As good women and oh such great wives
They kept secrets that could never be told
Of a life that they did not unfold
Because they still shielded their brothers
From the disgust and shame of others
The sisters love for each other never died
Each holding the other when they cried
There is only a little that was told
When they were ill and growing old
They are dead now for many years
Resting in peace … no longer any fears
