I saw the man I was supposed to be,



Biblical manhood at its epitome.

Although far ahead of me, it was attainable.



Through a God so easily accessible.

But time has shown I’m a fickle man.



Selfish, as only one who is covetous can.

Caught up in vain attempts for contentment.



Losing self in what I thought life meant.

The man I ought to be shrouded.



His morals and standards clouded.

I saw the man I was supposed to be.



Biblical manhood now misplaced by depravity.

A really personal poem. Vulnerability is part of emotive writing. How vulnerable are you willing to be in your own writing?
