I’m a Man of Many Things

Accidental Poet


I’m a man of passion

I’m a man of pride

I’m no millionaire but

There’s more to me than meets the eye


I’m a man of family

I’m a man of friendship

There’s no quarrel

That can’t be mended


I’m a man of good work ethics

I’m a man of respect

If it’s honestly earned

It won’t be from neglect


I’m a man of faith

I’m a man who’s spiritual

I believe there’s someone or something

That loves us all equal


I’m a man of elation

I’m a man of sorrow

I reminisce of yesterday

But I look forward to tomorrow


I’m a man of Nature

I’m a man who cares

For all living species

This Earth for all to share


I’m a man of thoughts

I’m a man of words

There within my heart

My muse surely heard


I’m a man of innocence

I’m a man of guilt

Like a flower with no rain or sun

Without love I’ll begin to wilt


I’m a man of love

I’m a man of emotions

For a lovely lady

She’s my truest devotion


I’m a man of loss

I’m a man of life

I’ve loved the same woman for over fifty years

 Though she’s not my wife


I’m a man of lessons learned

I’m a man of many things

With my feet on the ground

That lady gives my heart wings

      This poem really struck me. It's really well done, though you've loved the same woman over 50 years, but she's not your wife? None of my business just curious. This poem touched on a lot of things, you are a true gentleman---Christina

        Thanks Christina. Its ok to be curious. Without curiosity, one might never discover their Muse, eh? 😉

            "There’s no quarrel / That can’t be mended" Thank you for your sage words!

            • Arvy

              Very honest words that really did touch my heart, also what a beautiful contrast you have displayed with being a man of innocence and a man of guilt at the same time. and I also believe that love isn’t something that should be labeled to confirm with social norms, love is unconditional and spontaneous i’d rather say. This poem put a smile on my face. Thank you dear A.P
