It’s not that men hide wounds within their frames

but our vision often makes them invisible

expecting callous hands

seeing only

their strength

ignoring really

who they long to become,

wholeness walking

in this earth.

A Sensitive Man


It’s true, when a sensitive man carries a shattered spirit, he is

little more than broken glass, easily enticed

but once he is healed, he will receive

the strength of heaven, not only

being mindful of God, but even more

in love,

with his wife.
