Why does he beat her?

He beats her, He beats her
Its just not fair - He knows it
But still he beats her

When she questions
When he does not have answers
When she raises her voices (even if it is valid)
When she does something he does not like
When she says something he does not like
When he is angry
He beats her, He beats her
With all his strength
With all his might

Why does he beat her?
To satisfy his male ego?
To show his physical strength?
To show that he is superior?
To prove that she is helpless in front of him?
To vent out his anger?
To prove a point?
To show that he is the king in the house?

is it fair?
is it right?
is it the way it should be?

And
She cries
She hurts
She bears
She endures
She ignores
She stays silent
She swallows her pride
She lets-go of her self-respect
She lets it be

The physical pain no longer hurts
She can bear it
The mental agony is painful
But she can endure that too
And then there is an emotional trauma 
But she is strong to take this also

What bothers her
Is that with all this beating
Something is dead within
And nothing or no one can bring it alive .. ever again
She is stoned.. for life

Just why?
Is it worth it for a day?
Is it worth it for a lifetime?
Is it worth it for the family?
Is it worth it in the name of family honor?
Is it worth it as a facade in front of society?
