    The Elements of a Man


    Integrity, pride, and honor
    Mark the crown you wear upon your head

    Love, hope, and faith
    Form your shield of protection

    These are your elements
    The elements of a man

    Complacency is unknown to you
    Stagnancy can never become you

    Progressing towards days ahead always
    Regressing towards days behind never

    These are your elements
    The elements of a man

    Essential to your environment
    A nutrient to all who surround you

    Recourse in times of need
    Refuge in times of danger

    These are your elements
    The elements of a man

    Those are the elements of a man alright...sometimes we get so caught up in the bad of a man, that we forget the strength, faith, hope and love, thank u for reminding us of what we had all forgotten from time to time..

    lo'
