Men

You are
Not
A number on a scale
Body mass
Or
The hardness of your dick.
The fit of your shirt
The measure of your hairline
The balance of your bank account …
The
The
The
The

You are
Your word
Your thoughts
Your loyalty
Your character
Your ethic
Your legacy
Your wit
Your grit
——
Don’t buy what they are selling …
Don’t hate what they are selling
Don’t even consider it…
It’s just their job…
That’s what they do …

But you
Are
A man
A father
A son
A husband
A brother
A human citizen
And you
Are
Here.

You adapt to change
And
Obstacles
Like an Olympic athlete
And you run this race
Your race
And you have a cloud of
Witnesses watching
Cheering you on…
You are what you love
And how you love
You are hands that build
And
Leave
A legacy.

You
Are
Here.
