"Men Prayers" (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)


"Men Prayers"

I pray to be the man today
That my mother taught to me to be
It was her that taught me the importance of taking good care of oneself

I pray to be the man today
That my father taught to me to be

I pray to be a man
Even though I have no mother or father
It was me that taught my own self
The importance of taking good care of my own self and others at the same time.

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
