Dealing with Challenges in the Relationship

In shadows cast by a mother-in-law's disdain,

Cruelty blooms, a thorny garden of endless pain.

Her words, a chilling wind that bites and stings,

Through twisted vines, a toxic bitterness clings.

By Fernando @cferdophotography on Unsplash

In every glance, a judgment, sharp and cold,

A narrative of cruelty, callously told.

A daughter-in-law, entangled in a web,

Woven by a mother-in-law's disdainful ebb.

By Mark Stoop on Unsplash

Yet, amidst the darkness, resilience finds a way,

To navigate the cruelty, to endure each day.

For in the heart's refuge, a strength does swell,

A silent rebellion against the oppressive spell.

By Fernando Brasil on Unsplash

In this harsh symphony, a woman stands tall,

Defying the cruelty, reclaiming her own call.

For every woman, courage holds her hand,

In life's journey, she's a resilient, steadfast stand.
