How I am trying to be a better man is to look at issues and problems women have from their eyes and their mouths through active listening.

I am the faceless man who goes into the bathroom of life and takes a marker and draws his eyes, nose and mouth and tries to materialize it.

I then try to figure out how as a man to lift the burden of my partner and any woman I come across as I watch the horror story unfold.

But that transformation is not what is important, it is the journey and the pain and the liberation of the woman.

So as a man I hear you and desire to be the man in the field .. that is my fight. For the woman, if the pen writing her signature on divorce papers is the sword that slays the demon of oppression so be it.

My short coming right now is the damage from decades of male stoicism has damaged my full ability to communicate it in a story form.

But for some reason in poems I am able to communicate a facet into my heart, mind, and soul. What it takes is a person using words and experience and stories to insert the key into the last door harboring my raw masculinity and soul.

Some women I have found in medium have the keys that unlock it easily. I hope with practice I can easily unlock it myself at will ... some day I will.

So to you Gaby Rosales and many others I want to share in public view my growth and masculinity bumps and bruises and all and what I observe. I also want to share my views from a male point of view.
