Strong Man

strongman-cartoon-character-daily-sketch-coghill

She was raised,

To treat men right

 

When he is hungry,

… she cooks for him

 

When she talks to him,

… he can disrespect her

 

When he messes up,

… she cleans up

 

When he forgets,

… she reminds him

 

When he insults her,

… she should tolerate it

 

He is a man,

… that is what she was told,

She should obey him

 

And that is what she learnt

 

He could disrespect,

He could insult her,

He could act like a child,

He had to be looked after,

He could do what he wanted to

 

… provided he was behind closed doors

… that is what she had observed

 

She knew the truth,

He was a strong man behind closed doors,

In the real world, he had to prove it,

Because in the real world,

Titles are not just handed,

…neither is respect

Journey

 

holding hands

A long journey,

A happy journey,

A trying journey,

A new journey

 

Faith developed,

Hope becomes stronger than your doubts,

Smiles replace your frowns,

Happiness becomes a way of life

 

You suddenly long for someone’s sight,

Their voice,

Their smile,

Their touch

 

This is a dream come true,

This is life,

This is love

Experience

experience

New life,

Changing times,

The truth unfolds

 

You have to go for what you want,

No one can entirely protect you,

You have to learn how to fight

 

You are now living the future you always dreaded,

One that you had been waiting for,

Yet as it drew near you wanted to avoid it

 

You are learning new things,

But what scares you,

Is the fact that it is just the beginning,

… there is more to come,

Yet its already tough
