Observations of life by author and poet Charles L. Chatmon
Or at least we're supposed to. Right now (in 2021) we're doing a poor job of doing this one simple thing.
We can't lead in government, the arts, much less anything these days.
Women are now the biggest consumers if you look at all the advertising, media shows featuring them in a lead role, it's great to see.
However on the social front, we men are a mess.
It's time to step it up, no more excuses.
Take the lead fellas, let's act like men, speak like men, anything and everything required of us.
Let's go into our communities and make a difference.
Let's strive to show we possess the intelligence needed to make changes in our world and in society.
Let's start speaking out against injustice, 'wild imaginations' and stop caring about the downvotes, negative comments or being 'called out' on social media. Don't you know folks are going to do that anyway social media or not?
Letâs be men again, no in looks but in spirit.
Let's be leaders once again instead of the sad sorry sacks we've become.
Men lead. We should and we must.
