Free Spirits (Part II)

Due to the high volume of positive responses on my poem “Free Spirits”, I have decided to continue it here. By the way, I am so glad that you all enjoy the writing- it makes me feel special 🙂

Here’s to the free spirits

Who’ve had enough

with the world’s expectations

and society’s bluff.

No, they’re not perfect

but they’re as real as it comes.

Here’s to the free spirits

Yea, here’s to us!

The Man Box and Marriage

Men are taught for 20 years to “be a man” and control their emotions.  Then we marry one and expect him to learn how to show his emotions over night. Be patient with your man. Undoing something that is 20 years in the making, takes time.
