A Certain Man By Derrick Foster - Poem by derrick foster

It takes a man
of certain sensitivity
to admit his feelings

it takes a man
of certain bravery
to lay it on the line

it takes a man
of certain humor
to laugh at his own shortcomings

it takes a man
of certain strength
to face his mistakes

it takes a man
of certain honesty
to give in to tears

it takes a man
of certain empathy
to walk in another’s shoes

it takes a man of certain
divinity to
understand the mysteries of life

it takes a man
of certain spirit
to dance with angels

it takes a man
of certain perception
to see what he doesn’t believe

it takes a man
of certain hind sight
to find his way to light

it takes a man
of certain compassion
to forgive the wrong his does

it takes aman
of certain nostalgia
to revisit the child he once was

it takes a man
of certain sacrifice
to stand for someone else’s belief

it takes a man
of certain belief
to see what’s not there

yes for a man
of certain sensitivity
it takes a lifetime
to live in his own skin
