    i’m just a man
    born with all the parts
    that separates men from women

    i’m just a man
    raised in love by my mother
    along with my brothers

    i’m just a man
    taught in the word of God
    to be the head of my house
    a father to my children
    and husband to my wife

    i’m just a man
    working for my crown
    earthly bound
    but spiritually sound

    i’m just a man
    looking for a partner
    to bare my son and daughter
    closing the circular link
    and her seed will be my seed
    taking my name
    if its her bid
    for a man
    fathering another man’s seed
    strengthens a child’s mind and heart
    and pleases the woman of the house

    i’m just a man
    wanting the hand of a queen

    for her
    i’d sacrifice a part of me
    just so we two can meet

    i’m just a man
    praying to find the rib i lost
    asking to meet her
    at any cost
    because a man is not complete
    without all his parts

    Thank you for something positive about the daily struggle to be a man, which is so much more than just adding numbers every year.

    Maybe just a man, but a heck of a poet, that was a wonderful scribe and message.

    I love this piece. So many men were not wrapped in love and understanding as you were. It is a great feeling when a man understands what he was set on this earth to do. Great piece! Flow on!
