A seed sown
A seed sown in the wrong soil
A belly swollen
A child in the wrong womb
He made a mistake
More than once
Night after night after night
A series of mistakes
No excuse was worthy
He sowed wrongly
He betrayed his only
He created life with another

She was the other woman
He lied to her
He wooed her with honey
He pampered her with money
She fell for his charm
He lured her into his den
Then she found out it was a scam
But it was too late
She was with child
She was torn by her mistakes
Another being in the picture
His seed…their seed

She believed her husband
He kept late nights
He seemed to be working so hard
She wanted to complain
But who wants a nagging wife
So she loved him still
Despite his late nights
And cold tales
He was her husband
A man of integrity
A man she loved so deep
Her loving husband
