As a Man

Image source: My private collection. Estonia, Tallinn, Pääsküla.

Sometimes I mess up as a Man
As a lover
As a friend
As a coworker
As a son
As a businessman
I sometimes fail

In those moments everything feels so vulnerable
The darkness seems so deep
That I can barely keep
Myself on my feet

Life reminds me so fiercely
That I’m human
That I need some space
To say grace
To pray from the depths of my darkness
And into the vastness of my light

The quietness of the night
Keeps my mind
Silent
So I can breathe
Once again feel like a Man
Take a stand
For the things
That make this life so grand

Sitting so quietly
