Topic of the day
"Man" was taught to be tough, to withhold his emotions, and to roll with the punches. These punches led to physical attacks aimed toward his wife and kids, the same woman who was supposed to be his rib. His detachment from his emotions led to a lack of intimacy towards his girlfriend, instead he chose to show his love to his fellow men. However, these men never raised his children, thoes of whom were supposed to be the most important part of him. Despite this fact, he neglected them. When he forseen a pattern of parental inadequacy within himself, he downright abandoned them simply because he was expected to reveal his emotions toward them. However, in his mind this task was solely reserved for the devine feminine. He was taught never to cry it was said that crying was a sign of weakness. The day he finally accepted he was human was the day he became speechless. It felt so good that he couldn't explain the feeling. He had been completely out of touch with himself, the creator, and his universe. He finally learned to love even when people showed him nothing but hate. He learned to punch the enemy not his wife, he learned to love his kids and he guarded them with his life, but most importantly he learned that his old way of thinking wasn't right.
She chose him, not because she was in desperate need of a man but because he was a true man who had vision, a few goals, and a plan; one of which she was able to, both, compliment and comprehend.
She chose him, not because his checking and savings account complimented his credit score but because he was rare and genuine. He had showed her things that she hadn't seen before.
She chose him, not for the size of his rims or his tims but because he had integrity, class, and he was his own man whether he was within or outside of the company of his friends.
She chose him, because he mirrored her drive. He never competed with her, instead he admired her hustle and she admired his.
She stood by her choice for several years, not because they had kids or because she was afraid of the social stigma surrounding failed marriages' but because he was the reason for her smile, he played a prominent role in her past, and he planned on sticking around for a while. But most importantly, he lifted her up by holding her down.
