*The Strength of a Man*

We are supposed to have
Strength.
The strength to steal hearts
Right from the Owner’s Chest.
The Strength to evoke
The Power of Love.
The strength to
Build roads, towers, and
Scaffolds…
The strength to leave
The elderly, and our women and children
Baffled.
We are supposed to have the
Strength
To mold, shape and create…
The strength to make and provide,
and keep our families safe.
I am just A Man.
If I could be more strong —
I’d build a life for us,
It wouldn’t even take long —
I just need these roadblocks gone.
If I had the strength
to clear all They put in our way,
And leave just me and you,
I wouldn’t have to say:
I am just A Man.
