Faith Or Pride.

I fear no man
But you might think differently
Because I walk with my head low
But not out of humiliation, no! It’s my humility

I fear no woman
I just don’t trust them
Because I don’t trust them, I can’t care for them either, not like I want too
But that doesn’t mean I don’t love them, it’s just my heart, it won’t let me show affection

I help where help is wanted
With no expectation of getting rewarded
Not even a thank you is needed
I do what I do for the sake of the almighty, not to please you.

And when I need help
I never ask you before asking the one who created me, or the one that carried me for 9 months patiently
And if I do ask you for something
It will be not to judge me, don’t ill treat me, don’t try to use and abuse me or worse mistake my faith with my pride

hahahaha well truly said this man ssly is the only poet
Very nice and very true description.
Full version: it takes a lot of desperation dissatisfaction and disillusion to write a few good poems. it's not for everybody either to write it or even to read it.
