I be Man

My simple description of manhood:

 

I be Man

From the prick of

my hair

To the corn of my heel

 

I be Man.

 

In work my body’s as a racing horse

straining on the reigns, an oxen preparing

the field for harvest

 

In learning my cranial engine hisses

and steams

 

I be Man.

 

My habits mirror the

soul within me

 

My hands bless and they curse;

create and destroy

 

I be Man.

 

For all that I be the strengths

and the faults,

the victories and defeats, in

life and in death

 

still

 

I be Man.
