    The Peace and Quiet

    I am surrounded by noise, by clamor and talk.
    In your arms I may find
    The Need, The Strength, The Truth and some Warmth.

    Lots of turmoil going on sometimes.
    It’s constant, intermittent, it’s raining outside.
    I feel a tear swell in my eye.

    They say
    It is said
    That man should not cry!

    I once saw a tear
    Once time a tear
    In my daddy’s eye

    To Me it Means
    A Man is not Diminished
    For his Emotional Sigh

    For Change.
    For Help.
    For Silence when it is raining outside.

    No not wetness but issues abound
    In the House
    On the Streets
    At his Job are the Sounds

    Of No Trust …No Fair Dealings
    Trying to make One Feel
    It will Wear You
    It could Take
    It could Tear You
    To an End
    All should Fear.
    Loosing Her.

    Find the Peace and the Silence
    In the Moments Shared.
    They come Sparely
    They come Frequent

    Keep Them
    Add Them up
    If you Dare

    Then what You may Notice
    Is the Moments are Here

    They are Plenty They come Often
    This can be
    A Wonderful Year
    Into Manhood
    Comes a Young One
    Now a Man
    He Sees
    The same Things
    His Father saw

    Unless He Changes
    The Cards Dealt
    Into His Hands.

    Yes. Yes. YES! Preach and teach! Tell him to set and follow his own path not (if applicable) just repeating the mistakes or resentments and disappointments of his own father's example. Be his own man!

    And if he's got a good woman, he better work on keeping her!

    My word, this piece really touched me. I loved this as a whole, but I must highlight these lines...
    ...for they wowed me. Everyone needs to cry sometimes, and no it doesn't take anything away from a man. Props to you poet.

    Thank You watzinaname
    I am glad you like this flow

    As long as I am alive
    I will hold a passion for life

    That I will let freely flow

    There is nothing wrong with a man
    That has a Tear in his Eye
    It means He is Alive

    To a Woman he is worth Living With and For
    All a man needs is a Woman

    I have a Son He turned 21 Yesterday

    He was Raised by me to Understand
    To Respect and to cherish those whom He Loves
    To Cherish those whom Love Him

    The ladies are crazy about this kid.. fighting over him..

    He has one Lady Friend he Cherishes
    I speak to him often about Her and
    With Him while She is there

    They both Understand there are no Promises only Possibilities.

    Thank You Miss Lady!

    So True!

    Brother I have nothing but Respect for your Understanding.
    I get dealt a New Hand Everyday
    I wake up I see the cards have changed over night

    So I play them.. adding of course one that I keep up my sleeve..

    It was my ACE!

    Thanks
