    I watch the young man
    standing in the road
    staring with eyes unsure
    and perplex with all that
    lies ahead of him

    So many roads so many
    choices some good some
    bad too many to choose from
    his thoughts of confusion race
    from south to west

    What if he gets lost or takes
    the wrong one? So many
    possibilities but there is a small
    road that he is curious about
    the others are tempting but
    don’t quite feel the same

    So many names flashing before
    him faces everywhere how will
    he detect his probable enemies
    and how will he know who are
    his true friends

    Just then when he is pressured to
    make a choice and overwhelming
    feeling of anticipation comes over
    him and a small tiny voice piercing
    from the inside out is heard

    Choose good not evil! It was then
    he looked to the small road that
    he felt good about earlier and saw
    a small beckon light it was then he
    knew his course the one that will
    always be right the road in which
    He will always find Jesus and that
    day was the beginning of his journey
    to manhood

    Once I was a child spoke as a child
    and did childish things now I am
    a man

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning
    Of wisdom and the knowledge
    Of the Holy One is understanding
    (Proverbs 9:10)

    I was so involved with your cause to spread the seed of educating our boys to the wonderment of manhood.
    The chokehold of being a black man is a inheritance and the legacy of magnificence must be taught and strenghthend.
