    Men ain’t ****!
    Where do we get that crap?
    Man was made in the image of God,
    Don’t give them that rap.

    Don’t be upset if he doesn’t know how to be a man.
    He was put in his mother and fathers hands.
    That means they should have taught him or them what he or they needed to know,
    Not mommy’s fault daddy chose to go.

    Advice from a woman to a man,
    Momma did all she could,
    Something’s just aren’t understood.

    The one thing momma would always say:
    “Respect all women son,
    Don’t let the sun go down with your work undone.
    No matter how much a woman angers you,
    Never put your hands on her, keep your peace,
    That’s what real men do”.
    Some men were never taught those words.
    Grew up acting on whatever they saw or whatever they heard.

    If men ain’t **** what does that make us?
    The women, who sleep with them to get what we want out of them all while satisfying our flesh?

    Men ain’t ****!
    Let’s stop that crap,
    Man was made in the image of God,
    Don’t give them that rap.

    So true...
    what we need to do is educate ourselves...
    Yall heard the saying where if you tell somebody something for long enough, they start to believe it...then eventually they start to live it
    Instead of tellin our men that they aint ****, we need to try and mold them into what they should be rather than just brushing them off. People often forget that you can't just look at the surface of things...cause it's always something deeper.

    Thank you Rich for your love.

    Lynne, so true I agree with you except the molding, part we cant' mold ourselves and the frustration comes in when we try to fix someone else. But I understood what you were saying and I thank you for your love. Thank you.

    The problem is with painting with a broad brush, every man is not the same, just like every woman is not the same. And thank goodness for it, do you know that kind of trouble we'd be in if all men really weren't worth ****? I hear ya, flow on sista.

    im glad you wrote this...nice piece

    it seems like everything is generalized, men women, color, ethinicity, everything is put into some category. It's time we really stop that.

    Speak sista....SPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAK!

    Adamantly!!!!!! Speak...

    Sometimes we don't realize the power of words...
    or how what we say...
    is merely...

    A DIRECT reflection of ourselves...
