                The Men

                The men are missing, out of place, out of position in society.
                The women have risen; They’re strong, fighting to continue our genealogy.
                Our kids have grown; They go on, living life morally,
                And come together, with one another, for a greater breed.
                But the men are missing, out of place, out of position in society.
                The women struggle; they buckle; the load is heavy they are trying to carry.
                The kids have strayed, misbehaved; they carry on violently.
                In broken homes, they’re left alone: They embrace the streets.
                Because the men are missing, out of place, out of position in society.
                The women are fed up; they are tired, they have given up.
                The kids are raising kids that have kids, and still…
                The men are missing, out of place, out of position in society.
                When will we listen, pay attention, assume our position in society?
