The man lost in the boy world…
Swayed, He is, by every attention seeking thing…
Control, Nah, that’s not his area of strength…
He does have some strength though…
Stuffed in every cep like a barbecue turkey…
He sure can lift ’em bells pretty good…

At a first look you can tell he’s a man…
With his clean hair cut and his unending ivory membership to the beard gang…
His suits does affirm to his masculinity…
The symphony of his tie to the pocket square cannot be left unnoticed…

But then you ponder…
What’s underneath the piece of clay…
How strong really is the man on the inside…
Sorry to disappoint though it’s a boy in this case…
His speech being uttered like a twelve year old…
The Book of books sure says it well
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks…

He’s a man trapped in a boy world…
Being bewildered by his toys…
Seeing the opposite sex as mere objects of possession…
Catching fishes is definitely a light task for him just that he never gets the golden ones…

Masculinity is obscured to him…
Little does he know that it entails way more than the facade contemporary men put on…
That the biggest weights here runs from mentorship to fatherhood…
From patience to attention to detail…
From courage to integrity…
From selflessness to service…
From faith to celibacy…

Being a man is definitely more than what meets the eye…
Rightly said by the Book of books
When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought like a child but when I became a man, I put away childish things…
