From A Boy To A Man (To You..)

From a boy to a man (to you..)

To you i may look like a lost boy with no morals
But in actuality i am the man who grew from that boy
A man, who has been through the ups and downs of life's toils
Twist and turns, bends and curves, lows and highs, despairs and joys.

To you, i may seem like a follower of the trends and the propaganda of today,
But, really, i am the man, who can now afford the luxuries that hard work allows.
Deserving, what may seem to you, as childish toys
Played with by the little girls and boys
The trophies which come from ah legit and legal nine to five.
The honor that comes with the occupation of a man who strives.

To you, everything is different.
Your aspects and on looks of my life have no true meaning
Because you could in no way know my feelings
Of maturing from a boy to a man.
Knowing that people expect more from you
And knowing that this is something you have to do,
May only be truly understood.. By a man.

To you, i may seem immature.
I am a kid at heart
But i know when it's time to play
And time to let the fun of the day
Come to an end.
Because i am the man
Who now knows the difference between
Wants and needs.

To you, it seemed
As if though my life was something dreamed
Because all of a sudden, me,
Little D,
Grew from the boy to the man.
I want to know that you understand
That i am no longer that boy.

Now let me know.
To you, am i considered a man?

    Awww.. that was very good.. the descriptions were amazing.. the emotion was loud and clear.. but i did not like the flow.. it was very difficult to read.. none of the stanza's or lines were the same lenght and this made it hard to read.. try and fix that up and it will be better.. 5/5
