The Poetry GslyA&a—Dante'Porter
as i made a transition
from a child into this man,
my mind grew strong,
and now i understand,
i understand what it is
to be a man,
to hold that woman’s
to give her the best you
to keep and cherish
so strong, it’s impos
sible to break the chain or band
to show her, that you’re here to stay,
where this Is where you wanna be,
where no matter the complication, you’re not leaving, no
to make sure that she is happy before your needs,
to make sure that she sheds not tears of pain or fear, but
to hold her right, to treat her like a women, and not a toy,
giving her all the respect she deserves,
i am now a man, not a boy. ..
to create a foundation for a woman to stand on with her
own two feet,
to allow her dreams to t>ecome reality,
to make sure that she is stood beside for support,
to back her up, enabling a high rate of satisfactory,
i’m a man, respect and trust, is a must,
but in this, i’m grown up, forgive me, but the lust,
doesn’t exist, it flew off as it was plucked,
i replaced that gap with love,
now i am the lover of a woman ever since. ..
to work for a purpose, my priorities are now straight,
no matter the issue, no matter the problem,
we will clean it up, a spill cleaned up with tissue,
everything Is going to be ok, to have anger involved...no
a woman should never be far too away from a man,
there is no reason for a man to be breaching...
a woman will be true to man who listens to her speaking,
to misuse a woman, what an error that is commonly
it’s sad to say, men are slacking now a days,
but to grow and learn from our mistakes,
let us undertake a new found lesson in knowledge,
from a woman, a mind so stable, men are able,
to learn more than they can ever learn from college,
the connection becomes stronger and thicker than eleva
to hear the words...stop it, not because of physical vio
but of tickling, causing happiness filled with laughing and
to treat a woman, as she Is sick, to give her whatever she
no medicine is better than the one you, a man can pro
meaning...the care and comfort in any way,
providing soup, juice, tea, and love, can make a cold go
away, any day
to have a woman know that she is protected,
leaves the heart and soul far from feeling neglected,
impressive, the women of today’s society,
far from recieving the recognition that they deserves by
as a man, i know what is needed to be done,
to show a woman what she has won...
includes a life time of commitment,
as a witness to her perfections in life,
to help her pass the aggression of society,
and what’s pushed against her with negative might,
to fly beside her, to hold her up high, sky high,
head past the clouds, with no looking dovwi, just rising
causing the improbably to be acheivable,
to show a woman all of this, would leave her mind in a
so amazed, a woman would feel inconceivable...
