Dad

I wish I had you
To tell me what makes a man
There should be more to it
Than being the evil darling in poems
Who seem to hold back their love
And break down women
In order to sate their ego
There should be more to it
Than being appreciated when passive
And praised for turning my back
On all you said was “manly”
Lest I be labelled toxic.
For following my father.
