    What makes you a man?
    Is it the extra length and width of your hand?
    Is it the glorious posture of your stance?
    Or maybe it's the darkness in your eyes...
    Just what is it that makes you a man?
    Maybe it's the extra aparatus in your pants...
    naw- it just can't be.
    I REFUSE to believe.
    Now don't go and get it twisted because I LOVES that dark brown delicious
    but your manhood just can't be measured in 8, 9, or 10 inches
    MAGNUMS don't make you a man, so what is it?
    What makes you a man?
    Cuz if it's just a big d*** I can buy one of them at Starships, ya dig...
    But there has to be more, more, more to your manliness.
    What is it that makes me want to revisit every moment we spent,
    made me love you as the past came and changed into present.
    Made me trade in my EXTRA playas card in order to commit...
    What makes you so special that even GOD says I should submit,
    pitch a tent and camp out in your world...
    But before I enter
    and we embark on this great adventure,
    please tell me mister...
    ...what makes you a man?

    What makes me a man is beyond all reason,
    all deep inquiries and changing seasons.
    It's something so special and truly real,
    that it takes a whole lot of woman to really feel.
    It transcends time and space and Kemetic tombs,
    like the secrets of darkness deep in your womb.
    That's where I was formed clear out of sight,
    molded in blackness and bought to the light.
    Given those qualities only a woman could give,
    the other half of yourself so that you could live,
    to love and embrace and to bind once again,
    with that part of yourself where it all had began.
    You gave me those inches so that I could please
    you in every way possible till you drop to your knees.
    From a baby to a boy you molded a man,
    so what is this mystery you don't understand?
    How can I be a mystery when it's plain to see,
    that whatever a man is was molded by thee?

    what makes me a man is that l love God...
    i fall short at times
    i love my seed.... i spare no rod
    "no good grades, no ipod"
    i love my mother... she gave me life :bowdown:
    God grace the throne of the queen of the day and the night
    l love my wife... i could give her the world
    but it still couldn't explain how much i love that girl...
    what makes me a man is i cry on her shoulder
    it gives me strength... makes me live older
    what makes me a man is i admit my flaws...
    i protest crooked laws
    i can wash my own draws....
    you get the point.
