A man of Character


With age, one in life's ladder escalates,
When the mind with age synchronizes.

He steps up and an exalted life portends,
He is true to life and to loftier planes transcends.

God made the beast with mind minimal,
He made man to discriminate from the animal.

Hence man should nurture profound thoughts,
As He formed the human against other lives of sorts.

His parlance sans breach should be of kind speech,
His sweet utterances the others should reach.

His deeds should function with benevolence,
He aught to ply his task with good performance.

His thoughts, locution, and action, altogether
Appropriate him to great heights as a man of character.

    Man is quite a surprising experience to every woman. He is like God and devil, he is a guardian and a perpetrator and he is beyond a woman`s catch at times.
    Like a philosopher, you have spoken out your mind about an ideal man. But I am afraid the dominating beastly nature has ever been nullifying man`s status in the minds of many good women..
    Woman is many times better than a man, that is the fact. We have to look at the fact helplessly... (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
