He has been a man, ever since the day that he came from his mother's womb.

It was never his plan, it was just a role in which he was expected to assume.

He was taught to be masculine, arrogant, and never flamboyant.

Although he chose to be his own man and set his own rules, he was forced to behave in the same manner, which was expected from the masses of other dudes.

His father taught him what a man was supposed to be, he trained him to view women as an adversary.

He was taught to count women in the same fashion that he would count his money.

He was taught that women were weak, and the concept of playing them for fools, was expected to be funny.

Although, he would often argued that such a concept was purposeless.

His father would often slap him and say," you ought to grow some hair on your chest".

He told his son that he, as the father was his mirror, and he, as the child was the sun. Therefore, he was expected to reflect.

After years and years of training, his son reexamined his father's proposal and finally decided to accept.

However, silently he desired to be his own man. He had his own ideologies, values, and plans.

However, he chose to honor his father and the fathers before his. However, when he became a father of four kids, he vowed never to do to them, what his father once did.

He viewed himself as being weak because he did not stand up to him. It was in this moment that he was finally able to identify with his father.  

He finally understood how much little respect his father once  had for both, himself and him.

He promised never to restrict nor take away the options of his own kids, just as his father once did.

He promised never to impose change on the path in which his children chose to follow, especially when their desire is to lead, rather than to follow, just as his father once did.

He promised never to place such a heavy load of responsibility on a child, solely because that child was born male, just as his father once did.

He promised never to relapse and become the same father that his father once was, and his father once was, and his father once was to their kids.
