When Man was Boy

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


How trite and ill-defined our thoughts,

of losing love and selfish rorts,

in jealous past and actions raw,

when a man is still a child.

In desperate hopes by need and love,

we plague our lives by push and shove,

determined though to take control,

and cling to what we own.

The lesson learned is we alone,

responsible for our peace and throne,

no other could we ever own,

our hearts no ransom made.

Control it seems a shallow dream,

a notion born of self-esteem,

the doubts of self can never be,

a reason for a love.

For we are bound our hearts resound,

in life to share not self-repair,

dependant we on honesty,

not needs fulfilled by force.

A man in truth surrenders proof,

as self-contained not veiled, aloof,

a foundation of love, unencumbered truth,

and an open heart to bare.

It is love that shines within a mind,

unconditional in all, a paradigm,

a perfect melding of two souls,

each complete and chosen whole.

When boys accept and transform to men,

surrender truth and love amends,

then life’s reward of love’s accord,

will surely bring them peace.

i like the last part...

When boys accept and transform to men,

surrender truth and love amends,

then life’s reward of love’s accord,

will surely bring them peace.
