Not every man with a heart,
Nov 7

Not every man with a heart,
Is understanding,
Not every man with ears,
Is a listener,
Not every man with eyes,
Is able to see.

For it takes,
Love and faith,
To be,
A Man.

Dear Man Lee,
Man Lee
Feb 25, 2011

Dear Man Lee,

So this is how it’s supposed to go:
I eat the fruit of the seeds I sow,
And permit the weeds to grow and grow.

But can’t I take a moment to trim
All the excess fat and stretched out skin
Of the extra leaves hung on the limbs?

Can’t you see that I love my garden?
That I worked so damn fucking hard in?
Excuse my French I didn’t mean it.

So you see there’s just isn’t room
For a baby in this garden’s womb
Doomed to unnatural growth and acrid fume.

So its not that I don’t desire
To feed and care for my young flower,
I just forget, but not due to ire.

All of the world’s love I give to thee
Just don’t expect anymore from me.

I am man.

I conquered vast pieces of land.
I ruled green patches and sand.
I am Akbar, I am Aurangzeb, I am Alexander, I am emperor,
I am man.

I discovered places which were unseen and unknown,
sometimes with my friends and sometimes alone,
I am da Gama, I am Polo, I am columbus, I am explorer,
I am man.

I constructed beautiful mosques and castles,
see this Taj, as if it was built by Angels.
I am Ustad Ahmed, I am Master james, I am Sinan, I am architect,
I am man.

I take rational approach to solve life's mystery,
through biology, physics and chemistry.
I am Jabir, I am Newton, I am Einstein, I am scientist,
I am man.

I have turned upside down many nations,
my thoughts and writings can inspire generations.
I am Marx, I am plato, I am socrates, I am philosopher,
I am man.

I crossed boundaries of earth to reach space,
Even on moon you can find my trace.
I am Aldrin, I am Gagarin, I am Armstrong, I am astronaut,
I am man.

I shape words like a sculptor with delicate touch,
my few words can convey so much.
I am Iqbal, I am Kabir, I am Wordsworth, I am poet
I am man.

I Stayed for nine months in her womb,
her love and kindness made a man in me to bloom,
She is sister, she is wife, she is mother, she is woman,
Yes, I am man because of a woman.

erroneous man
Jordan Harris

He is an
erroneous man
with a soul splotched
in every color
whose death
his ultimate

a man will surely rise from this here boy
Oct 1

from this mangled shell I have to nurse
I'm trying to break an ancient curse
my honesty is fragile when it's coy
I can't compete with better poets
who split the sun and seem to know it
a man will surely rise from this here boy

the scenes that play out in my mind
pretend to waltz with the sublime
I cannot see by looking with my eyes
I'm told to hoard my smiles some more
life is miserable at its core
from this here gloom, a man will surely rise

my family says I've got no plan
my boss will hardly understand
I've got no need for certainties at all
all the ladies in distress
a man who rises has to bless
if a man will surely rise at all

I refuse to write about a pain
that leaves my armies cruelly slain
I won't add to the sorrow of the wise
there's too much heartbreak going 'round
who will finally drown that sound?
finally, a man will surely have to rise

I bathe in glorious lights of praise
my wallet's empty but my head is raised
if I make you smile, at least I've written right
if my happiness is such a bore
that you might not want to read more
a man will surely rise tonight

I haven't got a thing figured out
just try and ask me what this is about
I'm always the example of what I most despise
but now I think I've found my groove
I've got no goddamn thing to prove
and you'll know, too, a man will surely rise

When you can call yourself a man
Hidden Secrets

When you can call yourself a man
In every essence of the word
Then you can step me
Not just a being that has a piece of meat hanging between their legs
I mean a real man
Provider. Care taker. Gentleman. Head of the house hold type of man
The kind of man that has a strong head on his shoulders
And a soft heart in his chest
Im gona take care of my kids
And make sure my woman is happy sort if man
Im gona be there for you
And Ive got your back type of man

But if you arent that type of man
Then please sweetie oh please
Stay the hell away from me

Wrote this dedicated to the guys and girls out there since i havent written in a while

Man, proud man.
Casey Thomas McClain

Man, proud man.
Dressed in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he is most assured,
His glassy essence, like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven
As make the angels weep.
