Why Do I Emasculate A Certain Type Of Man? - Poem by Elizabeth Torres

He challenges women
Jealous of women
Hate women
Strong women
It makes him feel inadequate
Because strong women wont quit
If he's attracted to a strong woman
and he can't have that strong woman
He then goes on a campaign trail
her Goals
The Low blows
Towards the strong woman who knows
A good man
The rats
she detects
and rejects
Because his heart is not set
on winning together
only winning by destroying the good woman
Why Do I Emasculate A Certain Type Of man?
Because he's willing to kill
The strong warrior woman he blames for his dysfunction.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There is a war against Women and I'm up against men in authority who expect you to bow down like some of their wives or girlfriends, But a certain type of man really hates women. Men who compete with women
And are willing to hurt Women to win at all cost, I despise.
Please pray for these men.

    Appreciate your comment
    I'm glad I got your attention.

    I write
    From incite
    My plight
    Is not all hype
    Yes I can be an emotional writer I
    Keep it raw and uncut sometimes.
    As an empath
    Usually targets are type
    You know
    The type
    Activist Poet In Action
    With a real conscience
    We get mad
    When void of emotional men
    To cover up
    The lack
    If we appear
    We have empathy

    It seems most men are afraid of even the idea that a women could be stronger than them. When they encounter a woman that is such, it's likely that, rather than show the emotion of their fears being realized, they might react in a more standoffish manner. A good poem brining attention to a societal norm which needs to be revised.
    The authors note, however, puzzles me a bit. Do you despise these men? Or pray for them? I'm not religious, and far from an authority on prayer, but in my understanding it can't be both.
