MY MASCULINE SIDE

Would you laugh with me,
and not at me,

when I tell you that I know we all have a purpose,
that everything has meaning much deeper than what’s on the surface…

Would you laugh with me,
and not at me,

when I tell you there are times that I am afraid,
and when I knew I should’ve moved forward,
I grew complacent,
and delayed,
and would it be ok with you that my life is an open book,
because I am not always able to tell,
when I am headed down the right path,
or when I am soon to derail,

would you stand beside me,
when I describe to you how I used to be….
not so you could give me your opinion,
just hold my hand and laugh with me,

would it bother you to know that I too need comfort and protection,
and that I need help with my decision making and my sense of direction…

Would you laugh with me,
and not at me,

when I tell you all of my dreams,
and that it isn’t just me talking,
but I actually HERE, FEEL and SEE these things…

would you laugh if I told you that as a young boy,
I used to wet the bed,
and as an adult I have shame around things I have done and words I have said,

I’ve never known what it really meant to be a true friend…
that’s the part in the movie that makes me cry,
I often wonder what will be said of me a few weeks after I have died,

Would you laugh at the way I sometimes wiggle my toes,
or trim the hairs on the inside of my nose….

could you help me take it easy,
when I’m tense and wound up….
are you capable of dealing with my attitude ,
when I am down on my luck…..

would you watch me while I sleep,
and ask me about my dream,
and when I tell you I had a dream about you and me,
forever and ever…..

would you laugh at those things…..
