Men aren’t meant to have emotions, men should be strong and carry us on their well-carved abs leading us to a manly curated and better tomorrows. [Says society’s men]
The African man is even more punctured than his fellow men, he’s seen as a pillar built on vigor and glory, burning with the pain of slavery and a horrific past.
I won’t say so much, but let your man breathe.
The African skin is glorious, our men are broken.
A flawed understanding of being one with their emotions, our women we see as unequal.
We need to be one with our stories as our skins scream liberty.
Man Of The Soil, Rise.
