Family Man

A Series of Short Stories (and poems) Inspired by One Word Offered by Another

A family man
One who loves
And loves to be
With family

There are and were
So many men
Who are and are not
Were and were not
A family man

So we created a term
“Family Man”
To honor those men
Who honor their families

Women do not
Need such a term…
“Family Woman?”

How many children
Wait for their family man
To honor them?
Too many to count

And how many mothers
Await their child’s father
To join the family
And be a man?

A Family Man.
