The Son I Would Never Have

This not a poetry or a prose. This is something that I have seen so much lately that I just wanted to put it out!

I grew up in the body of a lady
I grew up with the life of a lady
I looked at the world like a lady
and
I loved men like a lady!

The men that I loved were
my father,
my brother,
my friend,
and
my lover.

Every time I came across these beautiful souls
with disturbed minds
I found the Son I would never have!

He will never look at a woman and rate her on her looks
He will never look at a woman and rate her on her clothes
He would not slut shame
He would not disrespect!

He will stand up for what he wants
He will stand up for what he believes in!

He would not mind crying if his heart is broken
He would not mind giving in at times if needed
He will listen to others
and
He will listen to his heart too!

Tomorrow,
When I have a son
I will never ask him to man up!
I will never ask him to grow balls!
I will never ask him to stay strong!
I will never ask him to not cry!

Today,
When I am with my men,
I will let them cry in my arms,
I will let them laugh their hearts out,
I will let them sing the songs of broken soul,
I will let them be them!

  2. That is a wonderful portrayal of tomorrow’s men. I wish It would turn out the way u described…
    Then there will not be something like Rape capital of country, or in a way a safe world and society will get carved..which will allow both genders to live with true sense of equality..

    Great work dear…keep it up.
