There is never an excuse for pyhsical, mental or sexual abuse and maybe I am old school but I will still fight to defend woman and children...

Grow Up and Be A Man

By: Felix L. Perry


Yea, you think you're such a big man 

Yes, you can make a frightened girl cry

Does that make you think that youíre a man

When you see those teardrops in her eye

Do you really think youíre a tough guy

As she cowers holding her baby near

You think your little girl thinks youíre a big man

When you make women and children fear


Well tough guy let me tell you something

Letís see you try and do the same to me

Come on big man flex your muscles

I think youíre just a little boy you see

Iíve met tough guys like you before

Changed their mind real fast for sure

Whatís the matter big man come on face me

Try and intimidate me like you do her


You may be old enough in years

But let me tell you what I see

Youíve got a long way to go boy

Before youíll be a man to me!

YOU said it LOUD and CLEAR!
Made me more aware!
I felt it LOUD and Clear!
Thank you for sharing your open and giving heart!
Once! when I was badly beaten - I went to work *(had to walk 2 1/2 miles over here to the other town! and when I showed up, didn't have to say much, a male friend (kind and caring like yourself) waited on our side steps (as my soon EX) was beaten and kicked and told to fight someone of his own kind, they kicked him clear across to the back of the school, then I remember seeing the Ambul. show up,That night was a powerful presence of a Person who really cared! and your poem made me more aware! He got #4 ribs broken and their was a lot of yelling/etc. I stayed positive, he did what I could NOT! I told him~
I was pushed up against a brick wall (our home had 1/2 brick going up) and was badly bruised (my cheek and eye area)
Warmly, Warrior Lady Sheeeoox

STay Positiveeeeeeee!
THEY all get it one time or another!Thank God they do!!!

certainly they lack respect for themselves and therefore everyone else...its nice to know there are heros willing to teach them the proper way

LOVE IT, Fee!! You and my husband would like each both think along the same lines. He always says, "Just gimme 5 minutes alone with him!" whenever he sees bullies on TV. I KNOW he has stood up to many in his lifetime. BRAVO to this fabulous poem!

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.... you tell 'em, Tiger! Men who can't treat women with love, respect and courtesy have serious issues that they need facing up to. Probably a "real man" would turn them to pulp. Perhaps these guys had a bad relationship experience of BOTH parents/sexes when they were little. Passing the shite along down the line to anyone whose physical or even mental strength does not match your own is the worst form of bullying... and women can be as bad, in their way... usually not physically, though. This makes me want to run on pitch with my physio sports' bag to pat my Hero on the back and attend his minor scratches from the fray! WTG, Champ! Kate xx

And, you are a man Felix, to take a stand in any form against abuse.
Thank you writing this and making us think about these abuses and, hopefully, somewhere, sometime, one of us can intercede and prevent this from happening ro someone else.
My hat off to you as I stand to applaud.
My very best to you this day.

WAY TO GO CUZ. Real men like my darling hubby and you cuz don't have to hit woman or child to prove their a man, you already know it. A so call man who has to do such berating and belittling things and find its the only way to show it are only small leeches on this earth.

Fee your words on this message is very powerful
Man or women who are abusive to me they
are not human and feel no pity for them
in my eyes they are mental seek and should be
In a mental ward and not have contact with any kids!
Outstanding message Fee
Love Peace and hugsss....Morning Star

"... But let me tell you what I see
Youíve got a long way to go boy
Before youíll be a man to me!"

Chronological age does NOT make a man. Haven't they figured it out that to be a MAN means to have a heart, to love, to show kindness, to be someone that your son aspires to be - not someone who is loathed and despised.

Fee, well said!


Reviewed by Gloria Buono Daly 9/30/2007
You've shed more light on what it takes to be a true man, a lot of courage and humility, and unfortunately, for many women, a good man is hard to find. My best, Gloria

If this is what it means to be a man, I think I will never grow up.
I'm still at least tryin not to.

So very sad how so many males seem to have 'a long way to go' before they become a man. And Kudos for this pen!

And that's exactly what they are ... little boys bullying women and children..but they sure as heck wouldn't try the same things on a man. Cowards! Well done Fee, love Holly

Felix I know and feel what you have written in your words. It is terrible how many young men think they can say and do just what they want, little do they know you have to earn respect in this world and their way only tell me they are cowards and will only stand up to a woman or child. Thank you for sharing.

love ya face Cuz XOXO, Rose

Thank you, (((Fee))), for speaking for the voiceless. Any person, man or woman who abuses a child, especially molests, ceases to be human in my eyes. I wouldn't insult an animal by comparing them to one. They ought to have their ***** cut off, as well as arms, legs and tongue, let 'em wallow 'round on the ground, anyone walking by could just kick the poo out of 'em. They get off too danged easy...thank you for penning this one.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

You tell him, Felix!! Only a coward would abuse or try to control a woman and you are right, he has a long way to go before he will ever be considered a man. There are males and then there are real men...Excellent offering.

Good Job Fee!! I add my agreement to the others! A man who abuses women and children isn't a man at all.
Thank you Fee.
