Good men need a song. Not a song of anger, or fire, but a song that calls them by name.
That is you. That is me.
You have scars?
Join the Good Men.
We are those whose beauty is not marred
We have eyes that see,
And we want to be seen.
Good Men are vulnerable,
Our pain is there, but we are more
Than our pain.
Good Men embrace the light that
You can’t always see, even when
There is dark inside.
We believe in what once seemed impossible,
We believe that this moment is not all that there is:
For the world, and for the world in you.
We embrace the shock of change that we did not ask for,
And we do what Good Men do:
We walk our way to freedom.
Good men believe in love even when all that is offered is a handshake or a ride in the car.
Sometimes the greatest church is the church of the four wheels.
We accept the love that comes our way after a fall.
And we get up
We are the Good Men who speak
To people we love.
And our eyes say it all.
Keep it Real
