Wanted- Manly Man
I want a man like this!
Extracts from 'Manly man' by Bradley Hathaway
Like David I want to be a man after God's own heart.
I'm not there yet, but I'm past the start.
And when people talk
I try to listen a spirit of compassion
That's my vision.
Surely I am a Manly Man
I want to be loved
and have love and give Love.
(and not just that romantic kind either)
Although I am looking for that beauty
Not helpless But wants to be rescued.
The Damsel in distress
I will fight for her.
Climb the highest tower for her
Share with her.
Delight in her.
Be her warrior.
She will be my crown
and I will be hers.
My Masculinity will be passed down
and affirmed to my sons.
Each of my daughters will know they are lovely
and deserving of authentic romance.
Society tells me all day long
That I have defined manhood completely wrong.
But you ask any honest man and he will agree
You ask any honest woman and she too will see
That I am a Manly Man!
