Men of Compassion

True Stength

We need some men in this world,

men who know how to teach,

their sons how to respect, and to be faithful,

instead of abusing women,

instead of being consumed,

with their V8 engines,

men who care about the earth,

and take care of her,

instead of only their wallets,

worrying about new taxes,

nonsense.

We need some men, to care about people,

are they only a part of history?

Where have they gone?

Where are the men?

who can see into the universe,

speak like prophets,

and write with fire!

We need to turn off the stupid TV,

and stand up for people,

regardless, of their color,

or which candle they decide to light.

We need to wake up,

stand up, or shut up.

Get a heart men,

and have compassion.

Note: I include myself in this. All too often we are complacent, and apathetic. True compassion means taking action. And I have seen many times where women are hurt – by men.

  1. I really enjoyed your exploration of this topic. I agree with everything you wrote, most especially because I could replace the word “men” with “people” and it wouldn’t change the meaning at all! I like it! 🙂

    1. Thank you for your wonderful comments. I am very blessed. I do see where men hurt women, and it seems like it happens alot, more so than the other way around. Peace and blessings to you.

  2. Beautiful, Mr. Nico. Although I agree with the first comment, I humbly think this applies to women as well. But as a woman (who unfortunately is made to feel like a ‘less-than’ by society sometimes) I sincerely appreciate that there are men like you (and my hubby) who feel this way. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Takami! This is a huge compliment. I’m apathetic sometimes so I need more compassion too. Peace and blessings to you and your husband.

  3. I love this Nicodemas ❤ I think it's wonderful. I love all you express from start to finish and I agree with what you wrote exactly as it was written. Awesome writing and thanks for sharing <3.

    Love, Peace and Sunshine ❤

      1. we are in desperate need of teachers who will spread selfless wisdom and keep away from power-games!

        I often think about them and wonder if our present society will let them be, think about Dalai Lama I like his teachings or Maya Angelou she too was very wise.
