I AM A MAN

I am a man
I understand
What makes things grow
From seeds we sow
Into the garden
And watered long
I am a man
Who will grow strong

I am a man
I often brand
Myself with love
From her above
And from Her heaven
And from Her hell
I am a man
Who will not tell

I am a man
I tended land
Where flowers grew
Where friends I knew
But, they went away
And left me here
I am a man
I shed a tear

I am a man
I feel the sand
Beneath my feet
And clothed with heat
Within this desert
So parched and dry
I am a man
And, men can cry
