    THE ANTHOLOGY OF A MAN

    By Jacqueline Amos

    The anthology of a man is not how good he makes love,
    But the love that he shares with his mate.
    The strength of a man is not how great his muscles are.
    But the strength that he provides for his foundation an kids.
    The power of a man is not how much he controls,
    But the power of love which he has within.
    The sanctuary of a man is not how much he treasures.
    But the spoken words he lives by God.


    The power of a man is not his self made throne,
    But the loyalty that he has for only one God.
    The success of a man is not the shinning star.
    But how he nurtures the foundation of his home.
    The ego of a man is the destruction of self,
    when it is not in the response of pride an dignity.
    The wisdom of a man is not judge by education.
    It is judge by reasoning an common sense.


    The congregations of friends is not delegated by popularity,
    It is governed by the human kindness he represent.
    The love of women is not granted a star,
    If he dose not respect the one he is with.
    A man who fathers a child is not considered a father,
    If he a bandits his own seed, in actuality he is not considered a man, but a sperm donor with no regards of his own family tree.
    A man who is empowered with money, shall seek other things to be complete, a man who things with wisdom feeds the hungry and the meek.

    A man with a house that sits upon a mansion on a hill, without the love of spouse, is a lonely man with money to spend. A man of greed shall never be happy within, he keeps his hands close, nothing goes out are come in.

    A man who lives for the world and sale his soul to sin.
    Is a man who walks the world like a zombie considered as the walking dead.

    A man who embrace murder an hate, death becomes a challenge within the actions of the beast, behind every reaction there is an effect.
    Un-controlling infernos longing for connection the soul smells of death.
    Man who walks with pride is not a man who advocate violence, but a man who is intelligent and acts in self defense. Power in defense for spiritual freedom.


    Civil rights and human rights go hand and hand.
    A man is a power tool of conversion to which it stands.
    A vessel to implant the justice of God and the love of all man.
    Sing not the glory of thy self, sing the glory of humanities that man pull together in knowledge, peace, wisdom, and understanding.
    Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, not the presents of face, the heart shall be the mountain of Calvary for which man stands.
