Caring Men, a poem inspired by CSW-53
CARING MEN – EZRA CHITANDO
My ears of faith Stretch for the sound Of the arrival of caring men My heart of faith Yearns for men who care
My hands of faith anticipate The gift of caring men My eyes of faith Search for men who care
My nose of faith senses The aroma of caring men My feet of faith propel me Towards men who care
Sensitive men Loving men Inspired men Humble men Caring men.
This poem was composed during the 53rd Commission on the Status of Women in New York, March 2009. The theme was, “The Equal Sharing of Responsibilities between Women and Men, Including Care-giving in the Context of HIV and AIDS.”
