These are the men

We focus too much on the negatives.

We focus too much on the bad.

1 in 4 men are bastards.

By definition, 3 in 4 are not.

I have a son

who is bombarded every day

by media saying all men are bastards.  

But most men, the men I live with,

the men I work with, t

the men I know well, are good and kind. 

 

These are the men we should be reflecting in the media. 

These are the men we should be modelling. 

These are the men that will stand by their loved ones, year after year.

These are the men who play with their children

These are the men who know how to work

These are the men who hold you when you need it

These are the men who do what is right.

These are the men who should be roll modelled

These are the men who make mistakes

These are the men who laugh with their children

These are the men who make dinner each night

These are the men that turn up to performances

No matter how tired, no matter how time poor.

These are the men, the majority.

These are the men that we should show our teens.

These are the men that they should strive to be

Are these men perfect? 

No, nor are we, and that’s fine.  Just know

these are the men.
