 Harry Sweeden. My life in verse.

To be a man?
I no longer feel always angry
Wanting to rage against the storm
Or needing the thrill of fighting for life
While trying so hard to conform…
Understanding more the person
Not just the man I’ve become
Looking deeper to understand my past
And how my life was undone.
Life is perfect for no man
We all have our secrets and fears
All of us have once hid in the darkness
Flooded with far more than tears…
Memories of all our transgressions
So much guilt weighing us down
“if only someone could show me…
Just how a man wears his crown?
