I AM A MAN
A part of this world, i have a soul and spirit,
I am a man with a heart, i try to understand.
At times i do listen, not as often as i should,
The struggles within me keep me from the best i can.
Hard headed but strong, i work with my hands,
Children i gave much of myself too,
Possibly the day will come when they understand.
I am a writer of words and thoughts,
I let the music fill my head.
Sometimes anger and hate invade my not so perfect land,
Many miles of walking clear my aching head.
Mistakes I’ve made in many a way,
I am a man, trying as hard as i can.
Decisions and choices from long ago,
Make me who i am, who i am sometimes i don’t know.
I pray that the judgement of others is not that which will come from god,
I am a man, hope you will understand.
