I once met a woman
and asked her,
"why do you look so forlorn?"
she replied," I'm tired of my mistress
and want to be on my own."
I asked again,"Dear lady,
what does she do to you?
If she treats you badly
you should certainly give her ,her due!"
To which she replied,
"My mistress, she lets herself be mocked at,
be sullied,be tainted....and be hit.
and when asked why she is resilient
she says, "So be it."
I then said, "my dear lady,
why would all that affect you dear???"
and suddenly the mirror cracked and the woman disappeared..........
