Real or Pretend

Men pretend      
within their disguise        
to be legends of the past        
to be the knight in shining armor          
[white charger optional]          
often times rusted and bent      
        
Strong and fearless        
little boys playing war        
but real men don't play these games        
thinking this is lame        
knowing their true power        
is the nobility of spirit        
to carry the weight of the world
      
Walking tall with iron will    
my heroes don't wear capes        
instead they hold me as I weep        
and while I sleep        
[and never say I snore]            
finding love in a world of lust        
for men's power or maybe magic        
is to create a garden on earth        
to build a house        
so I can make a home
