It's a man's world.
I'm invincible,scars invisible
inside I'm literal mess,I'm critical
facade of manly individualism
hiding the widening schism
between my powers and role
and my place on the totem pole
of society. I've almost lost sobriety
washing down the ghost,I'm fighting
already have the status of a diety.
valued for power & loved for authority
the bigger my wallet, the more I'm mighty
expected to drink down my pains,
no matter howsoever intense,
acerbic alcohol flows in my veins
vision 20-20 in the patriarchal lens
WTFog this opacity is dense.
living life in the fast lane,
insecurity is my gasoline,
i am dying by the gallons
all my family and friends
in this race I can't sustain
at the top there's only lonely men.
about to shout in void,
no wonder they're schizoid,
atrophied emotions, judged for life
for the paychecks they sign & not for smiles
they brought onto friends & kids or wife
still wondering if I'm right
do me a favor and next time
you read a news of suicide
count them till the month is by
and riddle me the reason why
mens rate of choosing to die
compared to women is twice.
