A Chauvinistic Male?
Long years ago we said our vows,
Which ended with a kiss;
In thinking on those years, I see
Some trials, some tears and bliss.
I oft time lead in many ways,
But sometime lean on her;
Though mutual sharing is our goal,
That oft does not occur.
My friends think I'm aggressive,
That seems my natural bent;
We walk the married road, perhaps
The way God surely meant.
Our children honor and respect,
That greatly pleases us;
The tender harmony we share
Is an even greater plus.
Please pardon, please this age'ed male,
Raised in a different clime;
Forgive him for he has become
A symbol of his time.
Both praise or criticism would be
appreciated. Perhaps it would clear my mind.
