Pain or suffering: The responsibilities of man

So much is said

Of the misgivings

frustrations

sadness

depression

rights

of man

so little of the

Responsibilities

of Man

A Monster for a Man

don’t get me wrong

after all is said and done

none of us

control

our destiny

unfold

but watch as fate

unloads its cart

of horrors

phantoms

delights

delusios

dangerous distractions

from the sober call

of destiny

the vocation of work

everlasting work

work that never pays

work that never ends

and so

our society

is one where men

no longer win bread

but men

are rightless

pennyless

but not thingless

reliant on music

as food

condemned

as idiots

to make a trap

for fools

so do not speak to me

of our ills

for you do not know

of the responsibilities

of man

to restore order to chaos

to calm the roaring seas

to relight the emerald fire

to reunite the lost lovers

and forgive their old partners

to unite man and woman, man and man, woman and woman, woman and man

to bring balance

and with balance

unity

with a priority

for the eternal spirit

that is the true responsibility

and dignity

of man

not a slave

nor a master

nay

a servant

of humanity

a guardian

of women

and children

a bringer of peace

not wager of war

a knight or a steward

courageous or cowardly

but never ignorant

of the suffering

of others

nor unaware

of his historic fate

so let fate

sort out this riddle

and let the binary

become fantasy

and unity

reality

beyond the responsibilities

of woman

and her man
