WHAT A MAN NEEDS
Sometimes a man has to be alone
far from the annoying noises of the phone
distant from the distractions of the known
in order to salvage hope gone
and allow a new man be born.
sometimes a man has to visit the wilderness
to find a way from wickedness,
strength for his weakness,
medicine for his illness,
and a path to his highness.
sometimes a man has to be a man
to stand even when everything seem to run,
to sit for long hours and plan,
to work as hard as he can
and ensure verily things are well done.
sometimes a man has to make a decision
considering himself and Gods creation,
not out of anxiety or desperation,
but out of reason and consideration
that he may accomplish his obligation
for this time and season.
sometimes a man got to do
what a man got to do,
not to impress or amaze you.
not to confuse and leave you with no clue,
but because its real and true
to him and other a few.
