A Man’s Prayer


Artist: Aimee Stewart

“May I be a man
whose confidence comes from the depth of my giving
who understands that vulnerability is my greatest strength
who creates space rather than dominates it
who appreciates listening more than knowing
who seeks kindness over control
who cries when the grief is too much
who refuses the slap, the gun, the choke, the insult, the punch
may I not be afraid to get lost
may I cherish touch more than performance
and the experience more than getting there
may I move slowly, not abruptly
may I be brave enough to share my fear and shame,
and gather the other men to do the same
may I stop pretending and open the parts of me that have long been numb
may I cherish, respect, and love my mother,
and may the resonance of that love translate into loving all women, and all living things.”
