Real Men

There is more to being a man than most people see
He isn't a man just because he stands to pee

It's about being loyal even if he endures pain
When things get tough a real man will remain

Some say to hell with substance, they desire to be cool
They live Fonze like lives, all the while they're the fool

Grasping for temporary sad women in their wake
It's all about pleasure they take all they can take

There are many good ones take a closer look
Behind a tattered cover can be a worthwhile book

Sometimes the fellow, with those bedroom eyes
Is blind to your beauty, his mind's only on your thighs

Stop looking for bad boys, they often break your heart
To find a happy ending, you must make the right start

    So true! Even though we know better, sometimes we still fall for the bad boys. Then, one day we find someone with a good heart, and realize how foolish we can be! This is a wonderful write. Very nicely done, Richard!...Thank you so much for the kind words and the congrats. I do appreciate it. :)

    Brilliant poem Richard! I have a theory.. It's not bad they are at tracked to its mysterious. A good guy who is mysterious is a good catch for any lady.
