Men, through a Woman's Eye

A chapter in the book Prosetry

The Life of a Man

by jusylee72

Men are easy to understand.
Yet, complicated.

Both animal and human.

They actually love us.

The ones who care about them.
The ones who bare their children.
The ones who pick up after them.
Nurture them.

The ones who fall in the toilet when men forget to put the lid down.
The ones who try to explain it's okay to not be perfect.

Women learned through the ages that weaknesses become strengths when acknowledged.

Men are taught to admit nothing.
Hide sadness.

My man is physically stronger than me.
If any other would try to hurt me or our children,
he would defend me to the death.

He would leave no prisoners.
He would show no weakness.
His death would be first before he would surrender.

Yet, the world is changing, rearranging what a man should be.
It is taking away that part of a man who is the provider.

He is no longer the lord of his household.

As women we need to be equal in our goals, our ambitions.
We can be a doctors, lawyers, firefighters.
Our careers are equally important.

And as men learn to share the role of protector and money earner in the family

They still need to know.

I need you to protect me against any enemy.
