A Woman Can Raise One By: Carl The Muse

27 Jun


I became a man 

When I learned how to control my rage 

I became a man

When I knew not only what to say

I knew how to say it 

I became a man 

When I stopped thinking of myself 

I no longer cared about material things as much 

I no longer cared as much about wealth 

When I became a man 

I was simply thankful for life and mine, and my families health 

When I became a man

I no longer rushed through my days 

I took time and basked in the moments so the memories would be saved 

When I became a man

I knew how to compete 

I learned how to win with honor 

And how to lose gracefully

When I became a man 

I no longer needed to take the control 

I learned that a leader can often accept a different role

When I became a man 

My soul took over for my mind 

I finally had direction 

I knew which way to drive 

When I became a man 

I shook all my childish ways 

But like the boy did

I still allow myself to play 

When I became a man 

I learned to let go and laugh

I am the get on the ground and play with you dad

When I became a man 

I knew how a man should talk

When I became a man 

I knew I had to walk the walk 

Its no fine line 

A man has but one side 

A man follows his soul 

A man gets better as he gets old 

A man learns to be still as the story unfolds

Patience is a virtue

It is a lesson learned 

Not an answer given to you 

When I became a man 

I saw the world through a different set of eyes 

When I became a man 

What I said and What I did became directly linked to my pride 

When I became a man  

I stood there crying 

I faced the boys worst fear

I had just lost my mom

But I could feel here right there

And I heard her say 

You are a man baby 

You are perfectly aware

She said she was proud 

That I had finally figured it out 

I would be just fine

And that she had no doubt 

 I did not need to be saved 

Her job was done

Her son was raised 

And now I can see 

Like she is living through me 

And with her feminine touch 

And my masculine embrace 

I am ready to play my part 

In this time

In this place 

I am who I am today 

Because a woman showed me the way

Some may not understand 

But I am example 

That a woman 

Can teach a boy 

How to be a man

In honor of the lady 

Who made me me 

Who taught me that a man 

Is about 

Love and Family
