On “Being a Man”

A good man does not need to flash his machismo or muscles to feel strong.

He doesn’t need to beat up on the weak to feel empowered or to belong.

He doesn’t need to brag to show others how great he is to demand respect.

In fact, when you think about it, it is quite the opposite.

A good man isn’t a firestorm, but the rock of Gibraltar.

He isn’t the desert wind, but rather an oasis and a shelter.

He is a bastion of peace, the master of restraint,

safety in the storm and shield from the pain.

Earning respect, without asking a soul,

helping the weak while fighting the powerful.

So if a guy doesn’t boast and seems quiet and meek

He might be more of a man than you think.
