No More Silence

No More Mansplaining

Atlanta – two days ago

Columbine – 1999

Every Day

She wronged Me

I Had to Kill Her

and then Myself

-      -

I am Angry

I am a Victim

Life isn’t Fair

-      -

Being a Man

Requires Us

To Have

A Heart

and

A Soul

-

To Be

A Loving Brother

A Loving Son

A Loving Father

A Loving Partner

-      -

A Gun

Does Not Make

Me or You

A Man

-      -

We Must Listen

To Our Fears

We Must Hear

That We are Hurting

We Must Reach Out

Getting Help

From Each Other

-      -

I must stop!

I must end

My Isolation

From Myself

From Others

Around Me

-      -

I Want Sex

I Want to be Loved

I Want More Money

I Want So Much

-      -

But

I Can Not

Get

What I Want

Being Silent

As I

And We Usually Are

-      -

I am Angry Today

I am Very Angry

-      -

I am Angry

At My Silence

Letting Others

Women

Black, Asian-American, LatinX

Queer, Gender Fluid, Questioning

People

Who Are Around Me

Not Making Excuses

Not Being Silent

Doing the Work

That I Should be Doing

Today

-      -

No More Excuses

Fellow White Man

We Must Love

Each Other

We Must Love Ourselves

We Must Begin

All Over Again

Being

Really Being

Ourselves
