The Era of Manhood

The Era of Manhood

The era of manhood frightens the child,

Confuses the child,

Far from enlightens the child

She cannot understand how man can own land,

How man can sell land,

How man can command land,

When he himself is an infant in history

She does not understand how man can own life,

Create life,

Harvest life,

When his own is so delicately thin

She cannot understand the essence of establishments or why manhood is taught from within

She cannot understand why man’s quest in life is to wed good fortune when fortune has always been in the eyes

Her father tells her it is because she is a child that she cannot comprehend

But Mother cradles her in deep desire,

Raising her against the definition of man.
