He knows
but he won't tell.
He sees
but he says he doesn't.
He hears
but denies he heard.
He feels
but claims he doesn't.
He hurts
but tells no one.
He loves
but never shows it.
He cares
but pretends he doesn't.
Who is he?
He's a man.

At least the humanity is still in the man. I like the direct simplicity in this.

Nice attributes for a man, but I love, and I show it. I love the motorcycle.

Hello Ron,
Men see through blue glasses and women see through pink ones... This poem is a perfect depiction of that truth! At least you can put those feelings on paper. There is something healing when thoughts begin in the heart, pass through the brain and then exit through the fingertips...blessings...Frances

A man does not show all his feelings. A man thinks different than a woman. You got that right with this write.

I thought you were writing about my dad! Wow! Very descriptive, well-framed piece of writing, this poem is evocative and quite telling.

I like your personal story of a 'mid-life' solution and the video is a great touch. We should all be so brave! Best of luck in your travels.

Nothing like waiting a year or so to read this poem, but I had to when I saw that you were living in a Class C motorhome. Anybody that lives in a camper, is a friend of mine, even before I know him...
I live in a class A in NJ...
Anyway, I liked what you wrote here, and fully expect to be checking out your books in near future...Peace, Ed & Rufuz (w00f)

My man is my rock. And it's true about the crying part, but I have actually seen him cry, just once, so far and it was after a nightmare where our son was drowning and he couldn't save him b/c he was swept away by a fast moving current. Paul does not let our son near the water without his life preserver and without supervision. Other than that he's solid (but deep down, not really). Wonderful write. Debbie
Reviewed by Bonita Quesinberry 9/28/2003
Very well put, Ron. It reminds me of when my son was 17yo and holding back tears over a friend deep into cocaine, saying, "Men don't cry!" And, I responded, "Who is the greatest man ever to walk this earth?" And, James exclaimed, "Well, Jesus, of course!" I rejoined softly, "And, He wept openly for us and all we must suffer." I don't think he's ever held back since that day. Society is hard on men, allowing them no emotion: an abuse straight from the pits of hell. On the other hand, you ride the only cycle worth riding! Been on those Hogs since I was a kid.

Keep up the good writing and, when you have time, visit my latest A/D contribution: "The Ice Princess."

Lots of love in Christ~~

This is a sad poem. It doesn't say much for the society we live in. The problem is that children pick up attitudes from the society they live in, whatever the parents do or don't do.

Guess I'm agreeing with you on this one. Excellent write ~Trish~, but I don't imagine you'll hear it.

Thanks for saying it Ron! Very sad, but true. Men were always taught to hide their hurts and feelings, so they'd grow to be strong and loyal. After all "you can't hurt steel", right? Wrong....they just hide it.

Sounds like a story from "Childhood" Didn't we teach them to be "Little Men" when they cried, or shown a tender side, The world reaps, what our parents sowed.
