Proud To Be A Man - Poem by Orlando Edwin

So many things are said against us...
even our very own. Put us down
but that wont let me loose my focus
not even put a frown under my crown...

Men are strong in will and in heart...
A man could reap a lion apart....
I man knows how to fight for his rights
A man never puts down a good fight

If our ribs can bring forth a strong woman..
That means our brains can create a strong nation...
We do make mistakes...and that’s no lie..
But we are just like any other. We even do cry..

Ladies..I'm not gonna stand here. and see.
All those bad things you say about men. about me..
If you're gonna treat us all the same...
stop treating us like dogs. but with love to ease the pain...

So as much as you're proud to be a woman..I'm proud...I'm Proud to be a man...
