A Man Will Be A Man

ďA man will be a man!Ē
Why must that sentence mean bad?
Does it have anything to do with my youth,
And all the women Iíve had?
Thatís all in the past
And it doesnít mean I was unfaithful!
All it means is experience,
Not to honesty Iím incapable!
Thatís an unfair stereotype
That all men have been accused of.
Those of us wrongfully blamed,
Our rights by women, weíre refused of!
Why canít we be judged,
By who we prove to be?
Donít treat me as suspicious
If shady, is not in me!
If I never lied to you,
Why is distrust always on your mind?
If you canít trust me,
Why even waste your time?
I donít believe all women are the same,
So why must you be prejudice?
Why canít I receive the same courtesy?
Why does your doubts, exist?
Is it because all other men treated you the same,
All without dignity?
Thatís making you not have faith in men,
That makes you not trust in me?
How can you say you believe in our love,
If you canít let your inhibitions go?
How do you expect this thing to work,
If you wonít allow our relationship to grow?
Iíve never believed you would do anything
Based on what another woman has done to me!
ďA man will be a man,Ē is the men in your past!
It doesnít pertain to me!
