JUST BECAUSE I’M A MAN……A Poem








Yeah
I hate Life and it's unpredictable ways
I have walked through the valley of love
A step slope valley of many hopes
With a Woman of my dreams, hopes and trust
With her lips red as strawberry fruits, her breasts firm as young avocado fruits
Her smile looked like the sunset
Her eyes were beautiful as rising moons and stars
My girl was the most beautiful in every way!
We used to be a pair
An inseparable pair that survived tornadoes and cyclones
They used to call us love birds
Every one was happy for us
I used to kiss her all day
Made love the woman of my dreams
Our Love was Sweeter than honey, her body soft as a baby’s hair

THAT’S THE DESCRIPTION OF OUR LOVE

Just because I’m a man
A man who cannot read nor write….
I’m A Man who never went to the city
A man who spent all his boyhood working in farms taking care of cattle
A man who spent all his years working as a garden boy.
A man who uses the pencil for scratching his head because I don’t know what is it for
I’m just a poor man
Who was once loved and because of my illiteracy
I was dumped
Dumped by a woman I cared for
The City she went to made her forget about:
Me
Our love
Our  dreams
Our hopes
Our future plans
She even forgot about our memories

JUST BECAUSE I’M A MAN

A man who can't read nor write
I wish to know the secret of the city guy
I wish to know how it proposed to her and how it convinced her to leave and forget me.
If I could know that secret I could convince her to come back to our Dreams and Make her recall our Memories.
Just because I’m a man
I lived a painful life all my years
I was loved and then not loved
We were together and then separated
The City is The Cause Of My Pains
Sometimes it happen
It can happen to you
No need to celebrate your love yet!!!!
