About becoming a man

You are still uncertain

Of life, of yourself

Who you want to be

If you grow up

But when the world calls

We must take our stands

& make our chances

Find our strengths

Triumph over weaknesses

Make a million & one mistakes

To find our right decisions

Take the ultimate stand against fear

By loving with our whole heart

Or the days move far too fast

Into bitter old age & wasted time

Swallows hopes, devours dreams

To grow into responsibility is to find

Our potential, all the ways we matter

Gaining pride & earning our confidence

Exploring new facets of ourselves

Earning new titles & embracing new roles

Standing tall as a man to live on your own terms

Learning to be a good man for others too

That in time you may be more than someone

To your family you will be everything

Discovering that growing up is gaining all

To be king one must first grow beyond boyhood

If you take the reins & go boldly forward

You may make mistakes but soon will know sweet successes

To run from adulthood is to waste

The opening acts of your new life only you control

Who will steer you in the right direction if no one is at the wheel?

We miss the empowerment of independence

Allow our chances at great achievement to slowly fade

As we pass time with distractions that waste our days

In being afraid to fail, we never begin to try enough to succeed

Be brave, be bold, seize each moment & make it yours

To live on your own terms is to rise

From the crawl on your knees as an infant

From the uncertain awkward steps of a teenager

To the stride of walking proudly as a man

Love this write, "Earning new titles" is not a necessity for me. Labels are not my identity, my character, morality and ethics, guide my full and open heart with Tolerance for ALL, not just some.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful rendition of my favorite character 'Peter Pan'. Be Well, Carin'
