The Very Essence of a Man

The Very Essence of a Man

 

 

 

The very essence of a man,
is to build
and keep a roof
over his
and his family’s heads-
with all his might;
and, with all his strength.

And to have
in his arms:

 
 

. . . a woman,
who
is respectful enough
to follow his lead
into a world
of their own.

. . . a woman,
who
is trusting enough
to hold his hand
until their bodies repose.

. . . a woman,
who
is faithful enough
to believe him,
when he says,
“You are my home.”

  1. A magnificent poem and words that reflect what real men are (and what a real woman can mean). The simple beauty and needs of life ~ you have a great way with words Aina.
