    Must be hard.
    To be a man.
    A world’s worth; of responsibilities
    Bring home the bacon, be the best husband you can be,
    teach the children right from wrong, and protect your precious family.
    And that’s just the you seen from the world’s view.
    Because if you go deep inside, you might just be surprised.
    Ego so strong, and pride everlasting,
    keeps him going, keeps him from lacking.
    One of a kind love for his wife and joy from the kids,
    is what keeps this mans life; worth living.
    So many challenges yet for him to face,
    that is why you must always have faith;
    in man.

    But.....

    Must be hard.
    To be a woman.
    A soul’s load; of grief.
    Babies to bear, feelings to mend,
    work to be done, secrets kept within.
    And this is just half of what’s known about you.
    Only those of your kind, can understand as you do.
    A treasure of patience she has maintained.
    Made possible by all the knowledge she has gained.
    Inner strength to match the greatest of beasts,
    even man himself doesn’t have her beat.
    A tolerance of pain that could bring some to their knees.
    Both emotional and physical, to fulfill the world’s needs.
    With all the things she has endured,
    that is why you must give to her;
    love.

    Welcome to Destee


    Very Nice Sodwn2earth

    Welcome to Destee

    I like how you brought man down and spelled out the qualitys.
    This is the :bomb: line in your drop. " So many challenges yet for him to face,
    that is why you must always have faith; in man. "

    For the women. This is so on point. " A treasure of patience she has maintained. Made possible by all the knowledge she has gained.
    Inner strength to match the greatest of beasts, even man himself doesn’t have her beat. "



    I like how you flow. Visit often and continue to drop some of your great thoughts. I would like to compliment your poem. With one of my own. It is called CHALLENGE.

    I think women deserve more than they have ever been given and my drop spells out some of the jewels I see in them.

    Two sides of one coin, we each have much to bear, we each have beauty so clear. This was a wonderful sentiment, and oh so true. Welcome to destee, I look forward to reading more from you poet.

    Very nice...all the more reason to celebrate our differences
    never let them seperate us by devaluing the quality of each
    but stand together as one...

    Thought provoking message.

    That's why we need each other, cuz without our help-mates, the weight of the world would destroy us.

    Very nice one.

    Peace.
