A Man

By Damien Knight

You were always strong
in your army greens
I was always wrong
or so it seems

You were tall as Mountains
despite your stature
I couldn’t reach the fountain
to you I couldn’t measure

I wanted you to see me
Teach me to be a man
I wanted to be honest, free
You wouldn’t understand

I grew strong in spite
will you still deny me
a man in my own right
I am now free
