There Was A Man

There was a man who was so humble
When he spoke he merely mumbled

There was a man who once was a boy
And played with fire more than toys

There was a man who fell in love
And mingled with the clouds above

There was a man standing there
Holding a baby with such loving care

There was a man on the beaten path
Yonder to war and met such wrath

There was a man who was so bold
But deep inside he was too cold

There was a man running in the rain
In his eyes was so much pain

There was a man who started the drink
Because he didn't ever want to think

There was a man who was so broken
The words he felt were never spoken

There was a man with so much anger
Those once held close became a stranger

There was a man with so much pride
For his family he lived his life

There was a man who was so wise
Long after time won and took his eyes

There was a man with loving arms
Lost his youth yet not his charm

There was a man who lost his crown
From lofty heights he fell down

There was a man put in the ground
While very few gathered round

There was a man inside my brain
Trying to make me go insane

There was a man......

Note: This was inspired one night pondering over all the men I have come across in my
life. Not romantically mind you, but a few. Everything from the begger on the street,
friends along the way, strangers, or family, etc. Each two lines represents a different
man. Thank you for taking the time to read my poetry.
