Poem: A Man

A man
Is not made
By strength alone.
Not defined
By bulging muscles
Or rock-hard abs.
A man
Is not valued
By the number of women
He’s slept with.
Is not measured
By how big
His dick is.
What makes a man
Is his heart.
How loving he is
How hopeful
How faithful.
What defines a man
Is how open
His mind is.
How vulnerable
He’ll let himself become.
For a true man
Is invaluable
We need
To recognize
The true nature of
A man.
