Mr. Nice Guy (Self Entitling Guy)

Shady blues caress his thoughts

An external facade he has embraced

over years. Embracing the hue of a

good Samaritan with hidden agendas.

A perfect clown at dusk, a smooth

actor masquerading as Mr. Nice guy

in the park at dawn.

Playing nice to a female audience.

Trading favors for dates, using kindness

as a contract for a relationship. Blackmailing

love and quick to stereotype all females in

the instance of rejection. Closing his mind

to the fact that different women are

attracted to different things in a man and

not all females find being nice attractive.

A man torn between what he wants and what

he needs. Stringing different females in a game

of fronts and vibes. Gloating and boasting how

he is a nice guy. Constantly battling an identity crisis.

Acting like an angel and simultaneously complaining.

A son of Adam thinking highly of himself.

Confidence he exudes, distrust he absorbs.

Basking in self entitlement, thinking that he

is God’s gift to women. Doing average nice things,

saying average nice things, thinking average nice things.

Whining and ranting when he gets disappointed. Playing

a symphony to, “bad guys finish fast, good guys finish last”.

Wondering why he is stick stuck on the “Nice guy bench”.

Unaware that kindness doesn’t require reassurance

and he isn’t obligated to profess. It’s all about respect

and the way he treats himself and women. It’s more

than just being nice. Mr. Nice guy gets him the females

he wants, respect gets him the woman he really needs.

Learning to re-evaluate himself and fix his mistakes.

Combining Mr. Nice guy with respect, love, patience,

tolerance, trust, and empathy.

Mr. Nice guy re-branded.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
