To me, this is what

Masculinity is.

Knowing the greater good, and

Your place in it.

It doesn’t have anything to do with gender

But all my instincts

Are like this—

Selfless, defensive, protective

Making hard decisions

In the heat of the moment

Because other people depend on you

With their lives.

Not holding any of it over

Anyone’s head, because

We can all give life to each other

In one way or another.
