I spent a lot of my life trying to prove my worth
Accolades, goals, the next thing, bigger, better.
Driven by a belief that was how I proved myself as a man.
Coming from feelings of inadequacy.
There was a deep seeded belief in me,
That to succeed as a man
I had to achieve.
This is a core masculine wound.
Its deeply entrenched in our psyche
Focussed, like an arrow
Prepared to sacrifice my truth
To provide, to prove, to feel I was enough
This is deeply associated with
the old definition of masculinity.
Mans need to sacrifice himself
to prove his worth to the tribe.
Dying in battle, for the collective.
We are dispelling this belief
Collapsing this dated way of treating man
Realising that men matter
They don’t need to do anything,
Or be anyone. Just be
A new definition of masculinity is emerging
The power to stand up,
Live from the core, in our truth
Exposing our essence
Only then once we’re relaxed with just being
When the pretended and striving drops
Throwing off the conditioning of thousands of years
Will we thrive as men
and our true purpose will be felt
In our bodies, bones and balls
