    We are so wrapped up
    Into the I must… have
    Someone to validate us
    That someone must be found that agrees

    So we stand in line, not moving forward in time
    Until that person touches us and comes by our way

    They may have the magic touch
    But they learned to play such
    Games that it leaves us all stuck

    That it chokes out the emotion
    Keeps the growth off the tree
    Thoughts and feelings run the gambit
    Then the action seems the plan
    Decision making all screwed up

    Some things about women and men
    “ Disappointment, fear, and the longing for self-worth “

    Women are first emotional, then physical, and sexually driven
    Men are first physical, then sexually, and lastly emotional

    So looking at that, get with the end of that fact
    Reverse it to first and come up with you

    I see I upset you
    You think I upset you too
    But the reality is you are upset

    While we sit and don’t understand it yourself
    I had no parts of you

    Woman seem to work from emotions
    Then they can be physical too

    The thing they boast, and withhold
    The most, is sex
    It’s a powerful tool

    Then man the lug
    Acts like a common thug

    He is physical first
    Taking it overboard
    Sexual abuse until it hurts

    He must have hands on and hurt
    Breaking things, not caring
    Or seeing he has feelings too

    Then sexual flirt’s this woman and that
    To the point of being a jerk

    Life should not hurt
    And should not be making others blue
    Be careful of the games one play
    They create the outcomes that are in our way

    Then there is the emotion
    All bottled inside

    Maybe that is the boiling thing
    That causes frustration of sexual nature
    Makes us forget we have something to learn​

    This was thought-provoking for relationships. :toast:

    No one should need or want another to "validate" them.

    There is a marked difference between "I can't live without you" and "I CAN live without you, but I don't want to."


    I hope your words here serve to give some a "pause."


    Well said.
