the caged wild cat

is quiet

he doesn’t roar, anymore

some lions are born into captivity

while others, are trapped

by their own choices.

There are no males, anymore

only emails

no biological difference, between the sexes

“Hello, how may I help you?”

Women don’t worship men, the way they should, anymore

Men, are not gods

they are courteous, push-overs

The reason why men aren’t gods, is because they don’t act like men

they have no virtues

no will, to do it, on their own

They want to be given, what is freely given

they honestly believe, there is no cost

Modern Men don’t think

they believe, what they are told

their role

is to take-out the trash

to get their food from a grocery store

to say yes, and never to say no

to sit all day, playing fantasy football

boys

can’t respect their fathers, anymore

their fathers have not fought in war

Modern Men don’t believe in anything, but what they are told

They actually believe they are 12 at heart

they need a mother

a woman, who doesn’t need a man

because

a man, is not a man, anymore

Men need a task to do

because they have no life-task.

To stand on two feet, and take it

is better than sitting

down.

I have to hide in plain sight

holding my tongue, like a worm, that wants to eat bullshit

laughing, singing

“Halleluiah! I’m not them!”

There is no easy path,

to the mountains,

holding great mysteries

melting snow, like fog, burning water,

like power, shining through the sun

rushing down rivers

into oceans, free, from the land

where governments, don’t go

where fish, swim in the sea

where pirates live, and monsters dive deep

Faith, sets a man Free

his quiet life is loud

he courts attention without wanting it

Women want him,

but they have been taught

to be something else

and he,

doesn’t want their cage.

  1. It’s a powerful poem, giving a glimpse at how some men feel emasculated and suppressed in today’s world. Did modern feminism hijacked the rights of men? It is to be studied in years to come. Thank you for the poem, it offers a new perspective on the complexities of gender roles in the modern world.

    1. Hi Tanya, thanks for reading, and for your thoughtful comments. I think feminism is a symptom of a much larger problem. There is a lack of love in the world. Instead of love, people try to be smarter than each other. There is an abundance of arrogance, selfishness, and pride. Unfortunately, feminism has made men and women enemies. It is so difficult to love one’s enemies. I am trying. 🙂
