there are two things which break a man
being taught how to be one
by his son
or by his wife
both are necessary
if he struggles on his own
Pray you have a good one of each or either.
As heartbreaking as it is,
To be shown how to be something,
You assumed you already are,
It leaves a tranquil etch in you,
You still wear the achievement,
Despite the bereavement.
Pangs for alphahood,
Sitting on your sons shoulders,
Sitting in your wife’s breast.
Taste it on your lips,
Swirl it on your palate,
Let it dance at the back of your throat,
And fill your belly,
There’s nothing that can sweeten the blow,
It’s something you just have to swallow slow.
