Stength of a Man


The strenght of the man isn’t in the width of his shoulders
It’s in the width of his arms that circle you.


The strength of the man isn’t in the deep tone of his voice
It’s in the gentle words he whispers.
.
The strength of the man isn’t in how he is respected
It’s in how he respects you.

The strength of the man isn’t in how hard he hits
It’s in how tender he touches.

The strength of the man isn’t in how many women loves him
It’s how he can be true to one woman in spite being loved by many.

    The strength of a man is isn't measured from his physical attributes but his worthwhile living in this world. His greatness is qualified by; how responsible he is to his family, society, religious community and to his country....great poem my friend, you have expressed your views so innocently....10/10 (Report) Reply

    This is a very lovely poem, in two liners, expressing the innocence and deep feelings of a woman, seeing how her man should be. Thanks for sharing.10 (Report) Reply
