Million Men—one Woman

Million Men—one Woman short poem

Uploaded by Deaushay Watts

I have discovered a new religion—a religion that would bring a million of the world’s strongest men to their knees.
I was fighting a battle against a million warlords, but when my queen arrived, I put down my sword.
Why continue to fight against a million men when I already have my one queen out of a million women?
Why fight against a million men when my queen sleeps alone at night praying to the gods for my safe return?
A man can slay a million men in battle single handed and take over an entire continent but without one queen the works of his hands are unfruitful.
The treasure of life is not in the egos of a million men but the heart of one woman.

This story was inspired by my new love for the Game of Thrones. As men sometimes we battle for and against other men, material possessions, and other tangibles things so much that we forget about our queens—the wives, the daughters, and the mothers. It is much more honorable for a man to love one woman than to prove an ego against a million men.
