… To Learn, Care
Wiser the man that realizes the plan of the wo-man….
I do then, refuse to believe it’s huge to accuse all men of being mules.
But then why; am I and every guy less in tune with the tunes of our common muse?
“I’m just tryna figure her out…”
And when I do, I hope she still cares about,
The way we exchange change when love is on the drought.
Biblical men say abundance of the heart controls the whole mouth.
So I say I love her 50-11 times but mommy never showed me how to love her like a shrine.
Daddy never showed me how to nurture my creative mind,
But the wife expects me to woo her like she’s fine wine; let her breathe like the reds and make toasts to her like the whites.
When I say breathe I mean exhale and when I say toast I mean impale. (You get the respectable and sexual connotations on every relations’ holy grail.)
But I should note;
I haven’t cared for her like I’ve learned.
To busy being selfish when the prize on the shelf is being burned.
It’s quite complicated un-learning, re-yearning the same barriers we’ve overturned.
Screaming regrets like overtures just to arrive at my initial conclusion.. I haven’t cared for her like I’ve been learning or like I can learn.
So wiser is the man that realizes the plan… of the woman trying to teach me how to care; for her.
