I Am The Man - Poem by Lawrence s. Makola

I am the soldier in the army
I am an anchor underneath the ship
The shuttle inside the sewing machine
The engine in the flying jet
I am the man

The creator of a nation
The head to a well balanced family
The reasonable father to my kids
The shoulder to cry on for my wife
I am the man

I am not the beast
I am not the rapist
No a slave driver
But the man

All can say I am
But I am not like them
For my values are:
Respect for woman,
Caregiver to children,
The comforter to the broken hearted
The soul mender to the bereaved
I am the man

I do not go braking into houses
I do not go hijacking
I don’t do drugs
I am not forced to kill
I am the man
