In Search of true Man

The hero who crushes,
The hero who loves,
The hero who stands up
To the occasion,
The hero who withstands
The pressure to rise
Up to the cause.

Who is the true Man?

One who cries…
One who fights…
One who solves…
One who loves
One who hates…
One who wins…
One who helps
You to win…

Is he not the true Man?
