    am I on a fruitless search
    do I travel a path which
    leads to a rude awakening,
    am I insisting on characteristics
    that are unrealistic?

    ....is there such a man
    who will love me
    for who I am
    doesn't consent to
    what society portray
    his woman should be?

    am I expecting too much
    for him... to value my opinion,
    appreciate my strengths
    enhance my weaknesses
    to freely communicate.
    exhibit sensitivity and
    express his emotions?

    ~I wouldn't think him any less of a man~

    am I requesting too much
    for him... to understand
    manipulative skills isn't
    what makes him a man
    not to disparage me
    to elevate himself?

    am I on a fruitless search,
    do I travel a path which
    leads to a rude awakening,
    that he was only a figment
    of my imagination?
    ....I sure hope not.

    As usual, your lyrical warmth comforts my soul. Have faith my Dear that one day your prince will come. Not in your time but in the Lords time. The attributes you seek are quite valid and honorable and certainly what a strong eloquent sista like yourself should request in a man.
