Manliness

 

It is my contentness,

The curl of my smile

And the strength of my palm

As I shake another’s hand.

 

It is the echo of my footsteps

As my shoes percuss upon the ground.

The sentiment fulfils me

Ensuring the pace of my steps.

 

I am simple and straightforward;

And completely uncomplicated

Within the solid boundaries

Of my sense of self.

 

I feel my fingertips,

Beat with my heart,

See with my eyes

And listen with my ears.

  1. Very nice. We all need to see and hear with the eyes and ears of our own hearts, the beauty and sound of the beating of the others’ heart. Words…unnecessary. It all happens from within when we are still. Lovely writing.
