A Good Man

I'm so tired
of being a good man
I lost my right
because I'm kind
follow my heart,
not my mind
What should I do?
change myself?
stop smiling,
become harder,
often lying
speak louder,


I'm so tired
of being a good man
What should I do?
change myself?
Should I fight
for everything?
wrong or right
in a boxing ring
happy or sad
sing a war song
to live in peace
must I be a king?

I'm so tired
of being a good man
but really I hate
to be a bad man.

Your poem tells us you are a good man. Do not give up being a good man.Cheer up.
I'm so tired of being a good man but really I hate to be a bad man. Verily, a great price has to be paid to be a good man, which makes him a precious man. A lot of patience, sacrifice, endurance and loss have to to be faced, even at times, a good man gets the title of a mad man. A lovely poem indeed. Loved reading it.

قصيدة جميلة وكلمات تصف الواقع، حقاً أصبحنا نشعر أن الإنسان صاحب الأخلاق أضحى ضحية للمجتمعات التي نعيشها. شكرا على المشاركة: -)
It is not a case of being good or bad but being strong for yourself. Barack Obama, Late Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu... the list is endless. They are all good men but with very strong personalities. Thanks for sharing.
