The Manhunter

Let go of the fear,
Let go of the pride.
Can I take a walk
with you by my side?

Walking down a dark, narrow path,
It's scary, I know!
Especially when there are man hunters,
waiting in caves down below---

To steal you away
from your straight, narrow path,
where they lead you to dark spaces
handing you the aftermath.

Oh how careless am I!
I don't have to fear the man hunter.
I can choose to run,
and I be the hunter.

Let go of the fear,
Let go of the pride.
I choose to walk in silence
with you by my side.

    Woman in todays society aren't treated like they are suppose to be.We all have a heart and a soul until men wake up and open their hearts to their woman I fear it will be a rough road for you I wish you all the best of love in your life.
