If he gets laid off

Will you stand strong

If he falls

Will you pick him up

When he weeps

Will you wipe his tears

When he errors

Will you understand?



Men are to be strong

But sometimes we are wrong

For they have hearts

And can fall apart

They need us too

Just like me and you do.

Daily Prompt; The Normal

two hearts beat as one, DP, Daily Prompt

Is being “normal” — whatever that means to you — a good thing, or a bad thing? Neither?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EVERYDAY.

This prompt rubs my panties the wrong way. I hate the word normal. What is it anyways?



conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural.
This is a standard definition but I believe normal is in the eyes of the believer, the one living life
For I see you
And you see me
We are different
Colors but have
The same two
Eyes, one nose
And one mouth
Two ears
Yes I am taller
And you are shorter
I have two legs
But you only have one
I see you smile at me
And I smile back at you
Yes we are normal
Normal for you and me
In the life we live each day.
