Life Around The Corner

Choosing Life and Operating Happiness


Men fear me.
I feel it when they speak to me,
And when they don’t,
I feel fear through their silence.

Drip, drip, drops of fear
Landing on the floor,
Trailing towards my shore.
I can’t take it anymore.

My feelings make me powerful,
Not weak.
Men don’t like my feelings,
As I get stronger
Their fear is at a peak.

They’re afraid to break me,
They’re afraid of my strength.
I want a man to walk the full length.

Don’t be afraid,
I am only the truth.
My body will give you
Eternal youth.

When I speak like this,
There is no wonder why
I am still single and
Men pass me by.

I guess it is scary to
Embrace my ways,
They sound unreal
And so very vague.

As Al Green said
“I am so tired of being alone,
I am so tired of on my own”
I pray I meet my companion.

I wish to meet one man
Who is ready for me.
Who can see my insecurities
And appreciate my purity.

A man who isn’t afraid and will not flee.
A man who is brave and believes in me.

I want to meet a man I can stare at
Straight in the eyes,
And know that there, I will find no lies.
A man who makes me feel free.
I want to meet the man who doesn’t scare me.

    Many men are actually afraid, they get insecure to see a woman getting ahead of them. They get envious and sometimes they start throwing tantrums 🤭.

        Thank you Devang!! I feel many good things about myself, but I never felt I am an inspiration. There are so many women doing so much in the world, I have them as inspiration 😊😊😊

    Controversial indeed! You’re full of truth, but the issue with men is that (even though there’re quite many who love straightforwardness) they love gentleness and humility as such make a good woman, not a weak woman. All the same, it’s good to stand by one’s precepts and characters. Such an amazing collection of thoughts. ❤❤

      Thank you so much, my friend! I think you just put into words something I’ve never heard before and it is very interesting to learn. Thank you again 💗🙏🏼😊
