Society Tells Us A Relationship………..

I have a hard time dealing with what society tells us is the correct way to deal women or contradicts what I was taught about dealing with women.  I have been taught to treat a lady as such, a lady; she is beautiful and delicate like a flower and you should respect her.  There are certain things that you do for a lady, as a man: open doors, compliment her dress, hold her hand, and consider her feelings because, as a man, your feelings are not as sensitive. 

Now society contradicts everything that I have been learning my entire life.  Society says  a man and woman can do the same thing, and I am supposed to look at my lady as an equal in that capacity.  I’m sorry, we are not the same.  I am not shaking your hand like you are a man.  I am not going to talk to you like I talk to a man.  I am not going to fight you like a man.  So I will never look at a lady like a man. 

The thing that kills me is that I try to do like society says and treat women like I would treat a man..  However, this is very confusing to me because when we have a situation or disagreement, now I have to handle that situation as a man and consider your feelings and possible reactions as a woman?  I do not get it, you want to be like me but now you want to be a woman when it benefits you and I should know better and do better, which one is it?  If you want equal opportunity in the relationship that means you wants it at all times and not when you feel it benefits you. The only thing that I can do personally is be what I was taught.  I feel that I cannot go wrong in that situation.  I will always treat a woman like she is a woman.  Unless you are signing my checks or doing business with me, I will treat you like a woman.  I cannot treat you like society says I should.  If you want to be treated like a Queen then you have to let me look at you like that.  Trust me I will be the King in all situations. 

To all my fellas, I was taught that your lady is a reflection of you.  If want your relationship to go a certain way, you have to lead it into that direction.  If she does not follow you, then she is not the one for you.

A Minute

Within a minute of time
A baby takes its first steps, and pictures are taken
A little boy no longer wants to be like daddy
He’d rather be a superhero that saves the nation
Teenagers are peer pressured
And want to know what it’s like to inhale
What it’s like to turn up a bottle
What it’s like to be with opposite sex, unwatched and naked
A young adult finds out how hard reality is
And his or her own life….they take control of it…or take it

A homeless man makes a sign for food

For he doesn’t even have enough money

To make noise if he were to put it in a can and shake it
An elderly person’s body is aching
A college student skips a party for education
A master sergeant retires and finds a new source of inspiration

Within a minute of time a kid is picked on and beat up
Within that same minute an adult remembers

What that was like, and laughs about it
While he kicks his feet up

On his desk in his big corner office
Within a minute of time, a young girl is yelling at a man
Screaming at the top of her lungs…Stop It!
A young man is told by police to Drop It!
Within a minute of time
You and I read it in the papers, a young man was shot
By the police when he reached for his wallet

And in the next minute racial profiling is what the experts called it
Within a minute of time

Someone experiences happiness and acceptance
While another may feel disappointed and neglected
An OG takes a minute to think about the old days

For just a minute ago by some youngin’ he was disrespected

Within a minute of time
Somebody is born and somebody dies
Within a minute of time, one politician tells the truth

While another one lies

A soldier, for his or her country, sacrifices their life

An atheist finds Christ
A man and a woman find that their soul mates in life
While an elderly widow lays next to a picture frame

Just to get her through the night…

Within a minute of time …

The answer could be wrong or right

The situation could be pretty and nice or cold as ice

The time silent and peaceful

Or rushed as if one was about to miss their flight

Within in a minute… what happens…. Is life…
