    Some things I sorted and put together.

    Always challenge a man.. he can't resist a challenge.

    A MAN .. a lover or sweet heart, a male human
    being is endowed with qualities such as :
    COURAGE...in a man is shown by...
    (Full command of one's faculties, feelings, and behavior).
    (Showing confidence which is based on a trust or reliance).
    A man is given ...Resolution, a ability to process
    and separate things, or himself from something.
    He is able to see them as constituent parts,
    as a separate component and as a whole.
    A man is able to give explanation, to a problem,
    or puzzle and come up with a solution.
    To show emotion is real strength.

    ===========
    Challenge Him!

    A Man is given..STRENGTH...
    ( having physical power, a toughness. A supportive
    staying power. Man has been given a concentration,
    unlike woman thats intense, vehement
    in emotion, passion, and conviction ).
    Every man has his own fervor.
    ( It's called fire.. heat.
    Lady's call it sex appeal, handsome)
    FORTITUDE... ( Man has a strength of mind that
    allows him to endure pain and adversity with courage).

    ===========
    Challenge Her!

    WOMAN...WISE...a woman is the glue and adhesive in a
    relationship. She holds the key. A man can't have a
    relationship with a woman. She has to accept or allow it.
    She is charged with holding the relationship together.
    Allowing or working with her mate to build and
    assemble a loving relationship or family.
    A woman has tenderness. A man needs this.
    A woman is refined... polite and has
    ELEGANCE..a refinement and grace in movement...
    (walks and stands in a sexy way ) a woman has inner
    beauty which will always over ride her outward appearance
    and manner. If her heart is dark and cold..it will
    be seen by those who have the sight.
    Her inner beauty some people can't explain they
    just want to be around her, and help her anyway they can.

    ===========

    Always Challenge!!

    This is because a woman has
    OPULENCE... Great Wealth.. this is how she can
    influence or inspire people.. She can make a man
    feel he can do anything if he can do it for her, or
    assist her in doing something.
    AFFLUENT... abundant resources of inner wealth.. an
    effect or quality of life that can flow into another.
    A wealth and beauty she can share.
    COPIOUS.. never ending source of love.
    A FULLNESS... more mature than man, totally qualified,
    accepted, and empowered with what a man really needs.
    A woman has depth and is complete.
    To you I give what I know is true, will you give what
    you have to me?

    Really nice. I agree with all that you said. Very insightful. Your poem goes into more detail about the chracteristics of a man and woman then my poem. What they each posses. Like I said, very nice.

    peace Hodee,

    - Very thought provoking,

    indeed there is always a woman in front of the man, it's just that man's arrogance is in the way!!!!!

    - beautiful scribe!!!!!!!

    peace
