Men Are People


Poem Commentary

I have two younger brothers, and I dedicate this to them. I love them, so much. I think woman forget that men are people with feelings that get hurt. I have seen both my little brothers be rejected and hurt. I hear he is just a man or he is whatever cruel thing they can think of. No, he is not just a man, he my little brother who I love and he is my mother's son. This is to people who don't know he is more than a man, he is my brother, my friend, and I love them both until the end.

Men Are People

When you look at him, do you see a person,
Do you know he some one's son,
Or do you see him as a man,
The one who is suppose to save you, and take your hand,
Is he just another mythical creature,
With just a beautiful face as his main feature,
Is he the prince charming in your mind,
Giving you his endless love so blind,
Is it a man you dream of,
To fall with hopelessly in love,
Or is it a fantasy of what a man should be,
And that is why the man in front of you can't make you happy,
Do you know his feelings can be hurt,
That he can't cry when you treat him like dirt,
Do you know he is not just some dumb boy,
That you can mistreat like an unwanted toy,
He is someone to the ones that love him,
Even though right now he is your victim,
Keep saying hateful cruel things to your man,
Push him as far as you can,
Don't see him as human being,
Just keep wondering why he keeps fleeing,
Cause in your life he is just another no good man,
But in reality he is a person you don't understand.

I enjoyed this greatly. It displays the humanity of men, and that we sometimes are put on high standards and trashed at the same time. It gives a woman something to think about too. I loved this

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
