He faces his woes
He faces his fears
He faces his tough time
He faces his challenges
Let him be a man

He has his weaknesses
He has this strength
He has societal pressures to tackle
He has economic pressures to deal with
He has been beaten by goals not met
Please let him be a man

He has a wife to love
He has children to care for
He has a home to go back to
He has his parents to take care of
He has his extended family looking up to him
He has his society to impact
Please let him be a man

He has his friends to hang out with
He has his foes to contend with
He has his boss to face
He has his colleges to team up with
He has his targets to meet
Please let him be a man

He has his goals in life
He has his aspirations
He has his life
He has his taste
Let him be a man

Please respect him
Please cherish him
Please encourage him
Please let him rest
Please appreciate his effort
Please allow him make decisions
Please respect his opinion
Let him be the man

In the morning when I wake, I will lift my voice in praise, To the glory of his name, For the things He's done for me ye ye…


I struggled for too long Being who I wasn’t Fitting  my circle into other people's 
perfect squares -- into all their
expectations for me Their perception was all that mattered What they will see and say Their standard for success and achievement
I showed up acting who I wasn’t Like a dancing monkey under obligations to perform magic To gain their recognition and affirmations for being who I wasn’t Against being Me
I broke the chains and gained freedom the day I stopped looking at myself through other people’s lenses because I discovered people wore lenses tinted and shaded to suit them not Me

ABUSED - ‘SAYING SOCIETY’ So loud So loud she shouted Shouting for help Every other night She is shouting I can hear her now He is hitting her again She's been hit, beat and battered Wounded inside out Lost her glow Lost herself-worth Lost her confidence Lost her smile All for what the society would say
She is grinding She is grieving She is dying Because the society won't listen to her No one wants to hear her own side of the story No one cares how she feels She has been told to stay there and fight for her home She has been admonished to stay and pray some more She has been told everything will be alright But for how long For how long She has been caged by what the society says
This 'saying society'
