Who wants a manly man?
One of all grit and grip and gripe?
Who wants a man of steel
if that means his heart is metal?
Who wants a man that can lift 450 pounds
if he can’t lift your heart when you’re sad?
Who wants a man that never shows emotion
if he doesn’t know how to show his love either?
Who cares about a man’s height
when his highest ambitions revolve around TV?
Who wants a man of heroic staunchness
when he can’t talk over the dinner table?
Who wants a man that earns a 7-digit paycheck
when all he cares about is money and business?
Who cares about a man’s “hot bod”
when his brain has cobwebs?
Stop thinking height and width,
and start thinking depth.
