Manly Man



I like not doing everything
That people want me to
I like seeing the reaction
I can coerce straight out of you

And your bright twisted face
When I say that I'm not “normal”
And your slippery shaken smile
When you say I'm just hormonal

And how I'm way too young
To know of a woman's beauty
My brains just thinking wrong
That's what “everyone is doing”

But if it was a man
Oh a tall and handsome christian
You would love all my choices
And love when I go out with him?

But instead of your support
I'm all alone in my head
Thinking it shouldn't be a women
But a manly man instead?
