Archives For Behavior


By Felina Silver Robinson

It is sad what our society has done to men. That fathers have left their sons with an inability to show emotion for fear that they may not appear to be strong. Let me be fair to state that this is not necessarily today’s men, but definitely men of the late 50s and those before them. In today’s age we have to live life with feeling and compassion. There is so much going on where we must have the verbal ability to comfort those in need when the time warrants it. Unfortunately, not all people seem to be equipped with that ability. Let me be clear in that there is a difference in a person that is just angry at the world or that just doesn’t want or like being around others and the difference between a person who just has a severe lack of communication skills because they never learned them as a child. It is clearly the parents responsibility to start the communication piece in their children, and the sooner they start the process, the better off everyone will be. Parents can’t assume that a child will be able to learn such skills on their own. Leaving them without them can be harmful to their adult relationships, especially their marriages.I have hope for all of us men, women and children. It’s ok to feel and it’s more than ok to talk about what your feeling. Together, we can all be strong communicators.

Regret – When the shoe is on the other foot

When you met everything was pure
Through the years much changed and anger and resentment built up
She wanting things from you that you didn’t have to give
She was angry and unforgiving
Her anger came out in violence
She left you battered and bruised
As a man you didn’t want to hurt her, but her abuse was worsening
She tried to kill you
You had no choice you struck out to defend yourself
Now she had the upper hand
She was no longer the abuser
You now were
You found a way to leave her and move on without her
You were determined to find love and happiness again
You reconnect with a past love but don’t tell her of your past
Somehow she connects with your ex and the new-found happiness you found has ended
Now you live with regret of not telling her
For now she thinks you’re an animal
Inside you feel it’s true
Now you’re begging for forgiveness and hoping for a new-found love
You look to friends for absolution
They recommend that you move on
But remind you that honesty is the best policy
For no one likes liars or surprises
He pledges to be true full you can only hope for and wish him happiness
Reminding him that he has to first forgive himself to move on
You hear a silence noting his awareness of all new now has to do
So ever though finding happiness would be so hard to do
————————————————————————————–
I wrote this poem in response to a story a friend told me of his romantic woes. I advised him to let his new love go. The trust was gone and the feeling of safety was absent. There could be no successful relationship there as it all started with a lie. I advised him that in the future he would always have to be honest or he would never find happiness. I so hope he will give it a try.
