The desire for power seems to be mans fatal flaw in more than just fiction. What is power anyway? The ability to do what ever you want to do with no consequences. There is always consequences. Whether we believe that or not.
I am sad at the station of Men today. Sad that we have to fear them. That they cheat on their wives and leave their children, or worse hurt them in ways that only true evil can conceive. I am sad that women today still fall for the same sad stories over and over again and find themselves in situations where they fear for their lives. Children are changed, destroyed and all we can do is give 16 days to think about them? Granted it is 16 days more than what we did before, it is still not enough.
Where are the heroes? Not the men who strap bombs to their chests. The men who defend the weak, and protect the innocent and give up their dreams and desires for the good of their family’s. Where are the silent heroes? I know some might say, there are still good men out there. But what are they doing about the horrors of our society?
I want to believe in the world of Men. That they would be able to honour the station that Allah (SWT) has created for them. That man can lead us to transcend our history and forge a new one for our children. But Men are weak. I know some really nice guys, but that does not stop them from cheating on their spouses or leave their children.
And that is what is really sad. That as women we have to constantly have our backs up against the wall with men. Even if a good guy came up to me, I wouldn’t even recognise him, because my defences are so high up. And they are not the heroes they once were. They will not break down the walls anymore they will just walk to the next open garage.
As long as the ordinary man does not stand up to men who use and abuse, nothing will be done. If women fight, we are “feminists” or trying to be like men. So yet again, the fate of the free world rests in the hands Men. So women, I ask you, do we leave them to their fate? Do we let them stand alone?
