The Three Guardians Of The Heart

BOUNDARIES | An angry poem on guys questioning girls’ boundaries. On using shame – accusing a girl of being boring or cowardly – as a tool to getting their way. And a call for guys to grow up.


You tell her that she’s guarded
She nods and says “I know!”
You tell her she should drop that guard
“Just have some fun, let go!”

Your comment makes her feel like
her cautiousness is wrong
She blames herself for letting
her three guardians come along

⚔️  ⚔️  ⚔️

Yes, three men guard a female heart
Ensure that it is free
Protect it from all enemies
and that’s how it should be!

The first one is her bodyguard
That big guy you can see
His arm’s around her shoulders
He’d hurt you if need be

The next one is her strategist
Her future’s in his hand
He kneels there on her left hand side
drawing battles in the sand

The third one stands behind her
One never sees his face
He whispers words like passion, joy,
connection, freedom, grace

They’re warriors, they’re spirits
They help her find her way
They only want what’s best for her
and if that’s fun, well hey!

But you ask of her to ditch them!
You say they keep her closed
But if you’d tried to look for it
you’d known her heart’s exposed

There’s nothing closed, these guards will bless
whoever dares to try
to touch her heart with true intent
But you don’t have that, why?

⚔️  ⚔️  ⚔️

Oh little boys of summer town
You talk of truth and light
You want the world a better place
You ask why people fight

And then you play your games, which feed
insecurity and fear
How shall we fill this world with trust
if we can’t do it here!

No, you think that you must trick her,
pretend, to get your way
I tell you, honesty and trust
will get you further, any day!

⚔️  ⚔️  ⚔️

Oh little boys of summer town
when will you ever learn
You’re all the same, too scared to show
your true intent and earn

the trust of those three warriors
that guard the female heart
No, you tell her that she’s safe without,
then leave her in the dark!

You do it out of fear
because you too have let them go!
A man with warriors by his side
would never treat her so

Yes, little boys of summer town
grow up and be those men
that earn your women’s trust and help
their guardians in again
