The Man of Few Words

The burden of the man

cannot be simply defined,

words fall short

for explaining his plight.


He who stands at every step

might be lonely

and, we would never even notice.


He would rather stay strong

than to show what he really feels,

the one who wishes nothing but the best at least.


A father, the man who loves you with his heart,

would not say it but would show it,

be fierce but love you like there is no tomorrow.


Showing it in small gestures

one may fail to understand it really

yet certainly there is something fishy.


Night and day he slogs for the prey,

receiving no presents for showing up daily

he thrives to make his family content.


The man of few words

often fails to barge in for admiration

he solely works for his lovers' satisfaction.
