Poem: What Makes a Man?

Victhur Ihuka July 23, 2015

African Warrior

Tell me what makes a man
Is it the absence of love or
The possession of strong arms?

What makes a man?
Is it an ego-filled mind or
Seething anger at every whim?

What really makes a man I ask?
Is it the bloated ego and lust or
The heart filled with contempt for a strong woman?

I yearn to find answers to these questions that trouble my soul — what
really makes a man?
