    always running ‘round here saying
    “I’m da man
    I’m da man”
    Well, if yo’ tired *** stopped trying so hard to be
    “da man”
    maybe you could become “a man”

    one who could support yo’ kids
    and respect your lady

    one who knows what “I love you” means
    and would be there for his baby

    one who could give up ten women
    for the love of one

    who would kiss and caress her
    when the lovemaking was done

    I’m not saying you can’t be down
    …to stop being you
    but do your boys,
    the next skirt
    or sex
    define you

    are you “da man”
    because you got yours
    or
    because you’re “a man”

    think about it.

    No Doubt

    "A boy plays house..A Man builds one" took me awhile to grasp and execute this step to becoming a Man...those of us that know must teach our sons and young bruthus in the community...mostly by example. This type of example was scarce in my formulative years...but once you know...you know..You are responsible for what you know...you will be held in account...I ask for the guidance and strength
    to better myself in this specific area...daily.
    Thanks for the Reminder my friend.

    One !

    ON A Continuous Journey

    NOW U KNOW A MAN IS NOT A MAN BY CHILD ALONG
    BUT A REAL MAN IS A MAN OF THE BREAD WHICH
    HE PLACED ON THE TABLE
    A REAL MAN IS LOVE AND AFFECTION YET A WANNA BE
    IS A FOOLISH SO CALL MAN
    A MAN OF FAITH IS A MAN THAT RESPECT
    HE NOT ONLY LOVE BUT CHERISH HIS MOTHERLY ONE
    LIKES OF HIS MOTHER//WIFE//BABY GURLS
    TO MAKE A CHILD DONT MAN U A MAN BUT TO CARE
    FOR WHAT U SEEDED AND SEE TO WELL BEINGS MAKE
    THE MAN IN U ......MEN COME IN ALL FORMS
    U HAVE SO MANY WANNA BE MEN IN THE WORLD
    NO JOB BUT WANNA CALL SHOTS
    CANT EVEN GET A WOMAN TO NOTICE AND THINK
    HE'S A KING MAN.......SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
    HELL I KNOW I AM A MAN!!.....THANX 4 SHARING
    THESE THOUGHTS
