My thoughts on being man
may be true for some
and not for others.
I only know me
because I am one of them.
For me, being one is harder than it appears.
empathy for you and the good you have done is found
when you are gone.
but, that’s what you deserve
having the gall to
Women think they know men.
they tell us exactly how we are all the time.
But, the truth is, you never know what being anything is,
until you are…
but, in my own experience of being one
of those peculiar male like creatures,
I definitely blend right in
among their ranks.
I can say
I am no expert
because there is no school
becoming a genuine man
is the same as
there’s no school for life.
We’ve all heard women say
‘Women are always right’
I hear a lot of that under my roof
from my two women
(who, from time to time, gang up on me.)
any man who’s wise enough
knows not to challenge that
cause’ no man wins an argument with any woman
on any subject,
That’s just how it is.
Women were created to win arguments with men.
So, if you want to start an argument with a women, you might as well
call the Devil up on your cellphone and start an argument with him…
No mater how you look at it
Men may win the battles, but women always win the entire war…
many of those wimpy male apologists have said it
that women are ‘always right and men are always wrong’
I think those wimps on all those women talk shows
Wish other men felt as ashamed as they are about being a man.
Funny, how when those shows fade away
those guys are never remembered.
They never earned a gravestone marker.
If a woman had trouble with her father
(And, I never heard of a female who didn’t)
that no man I’ve ever heard of
makes the cut
there’s no way any man can…
But, that man in her life has a special challenge if he can muster up the strength and character to survive all of the drama he’s in for
he has to be more than he can be
which is impossible in itself to do
for, how can one man be more than he can be at any given moment?
he can only be who he is
and, all men fail being better than that.
The divorce rate has never been higher
and single relationships don’t last, either
it amazes me how men and women stick together for as long as they do.
everyone should be responsible for their own happiness
yet, it doesn’t appear to quite work that way
because so many blame others
for their own unhappiness.
I hear men get quite a bit of blame and flak these days
Just turn on a woman’s talk show and within a few seconds, you’ll hear it…
But, it’s always been that way
long before talk shows were invented.
it probably goes back to the metaphorical Adam
after he took that bite.
he’s the one who screwed it up for all those who followed.
‘Can’t live with them or live without them’
that’s a popular phrase
which is as true now as always
and, it doesn’t get any easier as one gets older
the only thing that changes
are the problems and challenges.
and as for
‘if I could do my life over again, how would I do things different’?
I wouldn’t do it, again.
That is, if I had any say in it.
I would rather stay an Angel in Heaven
(if I could get that appointment)
and look down
relieved I wasn’t one of those poor
but, as my luck would have it
I’d be looking up
at the men and women looking
down at me
shedding their eternal tears.
yet, I know without a doubt
I wouldn’t have matured
past a child
And, would have only cared about myself.
Because of them, I now know what love is and isn’t.
because, when women cry, the whole world cries with them.
but, when a man cries, he cries
to his god,
