What is man to me?

imagesIORLEX2A

A father, a brother, a lover, a husband, a son

Man to me is an epitome of strength,

A support through life’s hurdles

Man to me portrays protection,

Protection from wiles and life’s trickery

Man to me is humility,

Exemplifying God to me

Not lording over my feminism

Man to me is persistence,

Taking responsibility, ownership

Exuding tenacity

Man to me is success

Manly, muscular, striding with such gait that commands respect

Man to me is a mentor, a guide

Man to me is gentle and kind

Knowing when to throw me off balance

And realizing when to bring me back into an assuring embrace

Man to me is a father, a brother, a lover, a husband and a son

Bringing smiles to my face and chills to every ounce of my being
