A Child In A Man Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

A Child In A Man

Rating: 4.7

Testosterone muscled men have,
The Top and the center, the caves,
Something is there to do the basic,
Nothing is there to think angelic,
Given the work, they do sincerely,
As the kids in the play school aviary,
The children long to be praised,
The children need to be reminded,
The children want to be around,
The loving hearts that care,
In each and every man, there is a child,
That long for the love of a mother,
When the women identify that child,
They have the responsible man in the household,
When the women take good care of that child,
They have the obedient handyman in the household.
When the women try to be funny with that child
The child will be the runaway kid,
Likes to play truant, shows the authority,
Displays tantrums and becomes juvenile delinquent.
Identify and rear that child efficiently..

a good mother's role is in rearing every child as carefully as she can, something her male counterpart is not so adept in.

Ha Ha, I love this poem! It is the truth of men for sure. I enjoyed the way you portrayed the child in men so aptly. It seems that if the man was not fully taught as a child the wife ends up finishing the job. This poem is unique and fun to read, it tickled my mind as I read it, because I enjoy the child within the men I know. Thank you for sharing this poem. RoseAnn

Beautiful mam, .It speaks of your experience gained in life.Thanks for that valuable piece of advice said artistically.Especially In each and every man, there is a child, That long for the love of a mother, I just loved those lines. This is the advice of the time when girls have lost patience, might be on witnessing the elder women of their family being ill treated, and opt for divorce at the slightest provocation! Thanks for sharing mam. Please do read my poem Domestic Violence, for it conveys the same message.
