Chosen since birth,
Edifying on becoming a wife;
A lost of adolescent for a moment not ready,
Bartering of an innocent life;

A child remained mute without a vocal cord.
Anxiety created moments of wanting to fade,
Night of the nuptial, outlay is exchange.
Forced with a graybeard man,

Alone with this brute in the dark,
An innocent lost forever.
Elucidating their past of a match;
Inducing a child’s conclusion,
Way of life without end.

Tribulations from an unclean tongue;
Now, a child with child,
Trapped in a life not chosen,
MatchMaker, MatchMaker desolate a life.

The Matchmaker
