A Chauvinistic Male?

Rating: 5.0
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,

yes, a very good rhythm. I suppose us Chauvinists are off trend at the moment but we'll be back! I reckon you got it just right. Seems to have worked in your case. Mine too! Tom Billsborough Ps I reckon they got your age wrong. Bet you're 21

Very reflective Joe. We walk the same road. The meter runs easily, tripping off the tongue and making for one of those reads which creep in and catch you in the throat. (P.S. As you already know, my parrot is of a like mind) :)

You seem no more a chauvinist than most men Joe. It's just the way we men are, and our traits are built into our DNA. This is not an excuse for bad behaviour, but sometimes we have to be tough, and aggressive, and it is all too often a frustrating and precarious balancing act.

Was not expecting to read this giving the title, but it delivered something else entirely, you articulate the grace of marriage so well that you give that institution hope in those who believe in commitment. A glorious read, that celebrate cooperation and interdependence of that union.

Joseph, A truly enjoyed poem. The sanctity of marriage is a two way street. Sounds like you met the love of your life on that street. Thanks.
