the ugly man

the talentless man

who loves beautiful women

and talented women

must takes his rejection pill

in the morning

and the evening.

Why doesn’t he love an ugly woman?

Why doesn’t he love a talentless woman?

For the same reason

these beauties

reject him.

After the woman says “No”

again, and again

She doesn’t have the same power

over him

that she once did

because

anything we confront

again, and again

loses its power.

He may come to see himself as superior to her

in the end

because he is the one doing the asking

and she was born beautiful

with talent

but mopping the floor doesn’t come with honor

and it’s usually done with bitterness

So, the man keeps asking…

again, and again

praying

that the woman isn’t what he thinks she is

hoping

that the world isn’t the way he thinks it is

Some men have a talent for faith

or they are simply afraid

of the realities.

      1. If you can dream and not make dreams your master;
        If you can think and not make thoughts your aim;
        If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
        And treat those two impostors just the same;
        If you can bear the words you’ve spoken
        Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
        Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
        And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
        If you can make one heap of all your winnings
        And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
        And lose, and start again at your beginnings
        And never breathe a word about your loss;
        If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
        To serve your turn long after they are gone,
        And so hold on when there is nothing in you
        Except the Will which says to them:”Hold on!”

        The kind of power where this came from. 😊
