    There was a time not too long ago
    When a man loved a woman
    He told her so
    Showed her so
    He was her man
    Through thick and thin
    Not long ago
    When men were men

    He fed his family
    Doing what he had to do
    Never whinned about what life puts him through
    Strong in Heart
    Mind, body and soul
    When men were men
    Men were men
    Moving on through life
    In control

    Self pity
    Never a part of his game
    He felt what he felt
    Said what he had to say
    Never disrespected others
    Because he didn't get his way
    When men were men
    Back in the day

    as usual

    your commentary is thought-provoking and full of meaning. Men cease to be 'men' when they allow themselves to be controlled by their passions. Once that occurs, it becomes like a demon, ever stalking and eating away at the core of their souls. Men cease to be men when they compromise their principles, and the affect is like so many dominoes tumbling down. The up-hill battle to re-gain manhood lost is sometimes too great a proposition. Especially for the weakened, fallen, once-upon-a- time-man who now finds it strangely soothing to live inside unrealistic hopes and dreams; and endless schemes.

    A man was a man, not long ago. The struggle to recapture even the shadow of who he was, continues.

    On point, BE. Thanks for sharing.
