“Boys don’t hunger for fathers who will model traditional mores of masculinity. They hunger for fathers who will rescue them from it. They need fathers who have themselves emerged from the gauntlet of their own socialization with some degree of emotional intactness.
Sons don’t want their father’s ‘balls,’ they want their hearts. And, for many, the heart of a father is a difficult item to come by. The key component of a boy’s healthy relationship to his father is affection, not ‘masculinity.’ The boys who fare poorly in their psychological adjustment are not those without fathers, but those with abusive or neglectful fathers.
Contrary to the traditional stereotype, a sweet man in an apron who helps out with the housework may be just the nurturant kind of father a boy most needs.”

I stood by your bed last night; I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying you found it hard to sleep.
I spoke to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
“It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.”
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many things and memories of me.
I was with you at the shops today; your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today; you tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I’m not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my hand on you; I smiled and said, “it’s me.”
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It’s possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, “I never went away.”
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew…
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over… I smile and watch you yawning
and say “good-night, God bless, I’ll see you in the morning.”
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I’ll rush across to greet you and we’ll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out…then come home to me.

Always With Love
Let’s include circumcision done
the 1st 12 hours …not needed
I had rooming in and knew the
horror of separation, fear
saturated me , as I was alone
Dad was out , celebrating with
his gal pals .
I had to accept his disconnect
as I became a single married
Mom of a gift from God , in
A beautiful baby boy , and in
and out of reality , I had 2
more boys which repeated
my awareness of how I lacked
a partner in all ways .
Dad physically exited 9 years ago but spiritually
guides and watches over me .
I am sure he’s part of my being in my new home .
I smile at how proud and thrilled he would be
in human form at my survival and blessing that
reward my efforts .
Rocking this , I am the abuser, whore, unworthy snake
and he is long suffering victim .. Family and friends supporting
him, have heard the lies , enjoyed his favor , in black and white
that has been fabricated …like a spiral it just gathers momentum
the shaming and blaming , sick punishment as the gloating pride
often laughing at the win ,the power, the control, often stating
the blame was mine ..
Flying Monkeys , His Monkeys encourage attacks , by all around
him, in his circus towards his target .
I stepped out of this energetic , business and liberating our family
and generations of Domestic & Child Abuse . WE are many …mighty
and Divinely Guided …🙏🥰💗
Come to think of it , I’m no damn Domestic
Blessings & Peace ,
To me this film depicted the harsh kick back from
the masculine energy of fear from women’s liberation
in bras and workplaces while holding their own
adverse childhood traumas , seldom voiced ..
It shows up in matters of power , money , and control.
Transforming this to Unity …Peace
Hold Faith ❤️
Blessings & Peace ☮️
