Poetry about the men we need.

Here’s to him

who stands up for fellow humans

irrespective of the labels society graciously provides

Here’s to him

who shows his strength through kindness and empathy

even when expected otherwise

Here’s to him

who is intelligent and has a wonderful sense of humour

without berating or un-dignifying others

Here’s to him

who is truly gentle and knows how to treat women well

and not just his wife, sister, daughter or mother

Here’s to him

who loves wholeheartedly

without reserve or shame

Here’s to him

who owns himself, his virtues, his faults

and doesn’t put ‘male ego’ to the blame

Here’s to him

who shares his beliefs

doing his bit to save humankind from ruin

Here’s to the ‘man’

who truly believes that above all else

it’s most important to be human.
