A message to Women

A message to women:

I am sorry for staring
But please,
Take it as a compliment
Life is short 
I would like to breath in
As much beauty as I can.

I am sorry for the beasts of men
The ones who made you this way
Living with your guard up
I understand you treating me
Like them
But I am here to say
We’re not all the same

I was raised by women
To respect and love them
To listen to them
To understand them, 
To the best of my ability anyway.
When I compliment you, 
I mean it.
There have not been that many 
Beautiful sights
In my life.
So I genuinely mean this thanks,

Thank you for being one of them.
