Boy To Man

From Tonka Toys to Tick Tock on a clock

 

The time has come to put the childish things away

 

This prince must now become King

 

The training is over!!! I step into the ring

 

Juvenile repetitions cannot become my encircling prison

 

I must break free...out of this box of the old me

 

 The old me whose buried beneath sands of yesterday 

 

And covered with earthly sheets of past memories

 

 The Pendulum game between soothing familiarity and fearful uncertainty ends now 

 

So I leap out this swing of confusion towards greatness

 

This is the change from a Boy to a Man

 

I have always wanted to be a superhero

 

So instead of wearing capes and mask, I placed on a divine suit of armor and removed my carnal veil to reveal to the world my true identity

 

So I leave to carnal fantasies to pursue reality...my destiny

 

For my mission is to help those I have been called to...my legacy

 

This is the divine plan

 

Moving from extending my needy hands to working to fulfill what my Father commands

 

Selfish denial has now become maturity because I know...and I understand

 

That its time to change and go from a boy to a man
