I used to dream a child's dream, of being a knight and rescuing ladies from their plight. Daydreams are like moonbeams, pale reflections of what we want to be. Childhood was agony.

Dreams brought me pain in two ways, the pain of being alone, unheard, the pain of being stoned by casually callous words. Why I view females so, when all they did was spit at me, I'll never know.

I held the same desires, the same soul, my need quenched the same fires, leaving me unwhole as they laughed at my need, fed on my pain, watched me bleed then took turns kicking my broken dreams, or so it seems.

Why should I cherish women so? They hated me, berated me, called me to task for things I knew not how to ask. Most of the rage and pain I try to contain in vain came from them.

Discipline became my mantra, my oath and code. Coldhearted became my operating mode in the depths of my soul where rages a howling storm of numbing cold.

I HATE them for what they did to me, a simple soul yearning to be free, yet women were also the source of every concern that I spurned to protect my hollow fate from decay.

My heart would ache as I did contemplate the romantic attraction that left me out, scarred and marred by the hard reality of being a pariah, unclean and fit only for females to demean.

There are times when I look back on me, and scarcely see, how I survived being so scarred up inside, from endlessly weeping about their callous disregard that has broken me

But broken, dear Dream, you are not, for I know you have come to see that you cannot judge a group as a whole. In every being there is the ability for Goodness, and in all of us the desire to seek again when our wounded pride and broken hearts have left us empty. Yet still I see your pain, and understand your words, and change the tone of female to male, you will have echoed my own stories in some way close to the same as yours. Well Done, you made me react, and that is the best gift a writer can give!

------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...

OOO...I want to scoop you up and hug you! I do so love this! You said I wouldn't. But I do. You are so talented-I wish you could see that.

At the moment most of what I see is through a haze of new found rage and old pain. It will pass.

Kindness to some is natrual and some just missed the boat.

I'm sorry for those who treated you so,their loss not yours.What they lost most was the love of a truly gentle man.

I'm humble enough already, no need to humble me further.

Not all women are out to hurt!
I could really learn a lot from you. Your writing is so deep. It is amazing to see the different talents different people have. I really salute you. You are a master in your own field.

In a world where there is a generalization of women being hurt by men, this truly shows that it is clear that men are all too often scarred by women. Although it was painful to write, thank you for posting this. We are truly not all bad, in that, may you see hope.

You know it's too bad there are cruel people in the world. As for the other side, I too have endured the pain, from every relationship I was in. Seems we are drawn to the ones that hurt. The scars heal, we cannot dwell on what they have done and lose hope, for one day happiness will come and they will love you for who you are.
As you see, the people here already respect you for who you are!
