I look at my life and where am from
Look at the journey and path taken all along
Crooked, misguided, fruitful, well in abundance
If you ask me if I would change anything at a glance
My answer would be a resounding NO; and yes in some instances, why not
But what I would never change is the fact that God gave me that one chance
To be who I am, a leader, a warrior, a MAN.
He created Heaven and Earth a d proceeded to create man
In His own image and likeness and was glad
That He looked at everything and got to see it was good, thumbs up.
Fast forward to the man that lives in this age and time, NOW
Well versed, articulate, eloquent, skill all in abundance
Mastery in his art, like His art of creation in His time
‘cause he was created in His own image and likeness,
you can call me His SON.
A father, a brother, a friend, a counselor, each an added plus
To his ever growing list of accolades accorded to him as he lives his life.
I can go on and on and on about it but he is much of a dying breed right now
Living an almost perfect life, almost Christian-like,
almost like the David’s and Solomon’s in their prime
Almost a true gentleman, almost a perfect husband and boyfriend,
almost winning that fight.
Fuelling an almost win being worth more than a no win in broad daylight
Believing it to be better than a perfect win designed by the one true DEAN
Of life and everything in this land,
‘cause He created everything and mapped out his life.
When I was a child, I talked like a child
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face.
Now I know in part but then I shall know just as am also known
And now abide faith, hope, and love
These three, the greatest of these is LOVE.
But always an almost love for Thee
An almost love to her from him,
From the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks
Something like,” baby, you know I love you dearly.”
No wonder the wo-MAN looks at us and wonders why we are always mean.
She cries for that TOTAL attention, tender loving, care and trust
Just the way he took a rib and created EVE.
‘This is the LAST bone of my bones,
And flesh of my flesh.
This one will be called wo-MAN
‘cause from the MAN this one was taken.
Yet they lived in the garden, man and his wife, naked
Together and they did not even once become ashamed of it.’
God calls all MEN to be naked in His eyes
Not to be almost naked but totally naked in His eyes
Totally sold out to Him and to totally submit to their wives
Ready to tackle anything with a mentor, a friend, a brother or even a wife
And take the checked flag for we will win this fight
Man you are a warrior destined for greatness
Not an almost win, almost succeeded fight
But a fully won victory in all eyes of the crowd
And we will stand and say, we won the FIGHT.
‘cause in everyone’s and His eyes, we are the warrior, the MAN.
Be that good man and live that good life destined
By the one true divine, the master of time
For in the beginning, God created heavens and earth
Then proceeded to create in His own image and likeness, the MAN!
