Full Grown Man...

Walk like a

Talk like a

Look like a

Smell like a

Swagger like a

Full grown man…

Thoroughly humbling

Witnessing the miracle

Reciting the poetic movement

Of a hundred percent

No DL

Spiritually motivated

Respecting his elders

Loving his mother

Honoring his father

Job having

Hard working

Honesty practicing

Toothpick rolling

Tilted hat wearing

Door opening

F u l l grown man

Who Is unashamed of his intelligence

Who Is humble enough to seek council

Who Is unafraid of getting his hands dirty

Who Is not caught up in machismo

Who Is strong enough to shed tears

Who Is not so in love with himself that he lacks love for others

One who

Walk like a

Talk like a

Look like a

Smell like a

Swagger like a

Full grown man…

I ask where is he?

Is he in the arms of another woman?

Is he behind bars?

Is he on a foreign assignment?

Is he given to the Lord?

Is he confused about his identity?

Is he yet maturing?

Is he asleep in death?

Is he hiding or afraid?

Or is he just a figment of my dreams?
