    I was born as a Boy
    Raised as a Boy
    Learned as a Boy
    Played as a Boy
    Prayed as a Boy
    Walked as a Boy
    Acted as a boy

    Grew up to a Man
    Act like a Man
    Prayed as a Man
    Worked like a Man

    Now im gonna die as a Man

    From what I've seen lately, taking on manhood is a big responsibility that many males of age fail to accept. Thank you for accepting that responsibility, because by accepting that you are now a teacher and who better to teach a boy to be a man than a man.

    BEAUTIFUL AFFIRMATION

    I think dear poet, and you know it.
    this poem is short and sweet.
    It is affirmation of that which
    brings confirmation...cause every
    man don't kow he's a man!:toast: ONE LOVE, peace and prosperity!
