Poem: Not Man Enough
"Let Them Go" by Madea
She was trying
with every bit of her will power
to recover from her illness
but he was afraid,
fearing he might find her
lying helpless on the floor.
His intense fear misled his mind,
believing he was helplessly caged
with no way for escape,
each time he looked into her eyes
he felt like he was less than a man,
as he wondered why he stayed
knowing he was not strong enough to hold on.
He turned into someone
she didn’t recognize,
a person with no heart
who used anger to cover up his pain,
who fled into the arms of another
instead of confessing his undying love.
Leaving them both stranded
feeling lost and alone,
realizing they can no longer turn back
for their time together is gone,
they cannot undue what is already done.
