**************************

 

Sometimes I feel,

in this life I do not fit.

That who I am as a person,

Is simply not enough.

 

That my value as a person

Is based upon my gender.

To serve for one purpose

the rest of me just humored.

 

I never knew before,

that people could be this way.

To dismiss good thoughts or ideas

because from whom they came.

 

To pretend that you were useful

For respectful thoughts or work

To only find in the end

What really they did want.

 

That your mind and heart are to be discounted

Unimportant, useless matter

That your here to serve in body

Selfish whims, physical in nature.

 

They come to allure you,

And play on your own self value

that you count as a person

your blind to their true desire.

 

You think you see the good in all

When most all your life you have

and you never fathomed wolves

Disguised as common men.

 

The truth be told,

Any wolf holds far more honor.

A wolf would never trick or lie

in attemts to bed a she, for slaughter.

Rantings ~ Searching & Sorting out things I find inside of myself.

We all have in life "Issues"

Sometimes we can hide them from even ourselves.

Sometimes, it takes something, someone to "trigger" them for us.

Many times, they stay hidden, even with triggers,  until we are ready.

Ready to face them. Until we have taken the steps to get to a place that we are ready to face , sort out and deal with them. 

 

A conversation with a freind of mine, helped show me

That this is one of my issues!

So, heres to dealing, and healing!

And just a note, I do not feel this way about all men.

 

There are many men of Honor.

There are also Women without.

 

I Strive not to condem myself to a heart that does not trust

Or any men that I should meet based on pasts unjust.

I strive only to heal my heart, from all anger or harmful feelings

I strive to improve my sight,

So I may see clear visions.

No need to appologize for your feelings; nor a need to "counter-point" your writings. Poetry is more cleansing for the poet than it needs an understanding by the reader. Cleanse forth, D.!

I enjoy your straight-forward style.
As for the gender of which I hold membership, I can not explain nor condone, but merely do my best.

Dear Everyone,

Wow! This is the most controversial work I have ever posted!

Please know that this is not intended to be a work of male bashing, as that was/is not my intention.

There are a great many men of Honor.
There are also Women without.

Many of Men of honor here at the Den, and many with whom I am proud to call friend.

I had used the term "wolf" in stereotype.
Stereotype in relation to how one sex can view the other in terms of bad behavior and or reference to them.

I used the association of honor in comparison "men verses wolf" that the wolf acts with purpose, instinctive and calculating but with a purpose that is known. The hunted know what it is being hunted for.
Some men, as well as women display calculated behaviors that are even beneath that.
Hence the wolf acts with more honor.
The wolf is honest to it's task.

Some people mistake kindness for weakness. So in a sense the kind at times can become target, easy prey. And though they may hurt at the result, they do possess the strength to remove themselves, or the other from the scope of their own life.

Life in reality in many avenues, is at least for a time, the hunter and the hunted.

My work often times, reflects everyday emotions, and strives to let others know they are not alone. And guide them to take a look to within themselves so that they too, can get past buried feelings.
Most of you who know me, know that, "that" Includes myself.
Thank you again,
~Jen

Interesting, artistic write. Wolves are not more honorable than men. Wolves do what wolves do, which is follow their nature, with variants for individuals. Men (and women) do exactly the same. The trick is to learn what human nature (for both sexes with variants) is about, then to the best of your ability steer clear of those with agendas incompatible with your own. Rant done.

I use to think this way about MOST men,I thought they were ruled by their reproductive apendage.
My dear dad in his effort to protect me told me
'never to trust them" (men)
as he was my hero it was very hard to let that go and see reality ,reality being that when all is boiled down they are mostly angels just playing at little boy games and looking to be loved
and I think it is a MYTH that men 'can't be monogomous ' I think they can be and they mostly want to be.When it's all boiled down women are just as likely to cheat as men AND JUST AS LIKELY TO DO THE WRONG THING.
I think it's really great you are in tune with your feelings about this and through your poetry are dealing with your feelings and are growing.
Reading the poetry of men will broaden your perceptions of them and you will find as I did that they are unique and oooze inpiration many are highly virtuous many with scallywag sides to them and 95% of them are indeed worth trusting and admiring.
Thank you for your honest frank and excellent poem and thanks also for opening a subject contentious in nature.
You are very brave.
Best wishes always
from
kay.

This is so good, and yes, wolves are more honorable than men in my book. I have never fit into the norm but a wonderful therapist once told me " I'm a square peg trying to fit into a round hole, and that it was o.k. to just be myself" I have to constantly remind myself of this and it works. Thanks ~Z~
