Am I a man or a man-age is a poem about growing up into adulthood.
The poet explain the self doubt that can occur when growing into adulthood.
It is so hard to say I haven’t heard before
Even the truth keep starring each moment
Stirring my emotions and leaving me in tears
Tearing me apart like I just got trapped
Yea, I got trapped.
I don’t know how I got here
Though I hear people talk about this adulthood
It was only yesterday that I was in childhood
Dancing in the rain with barely a pant on
Dining and whining with nothing to worry about
Am I a man or man-age
The difference between being of age and being a man
Don’t be deceived age isn’t just a number
This stage of life is quite different from what we see in the movies
The cars, job and a beautiful wife and kids are no soft work
Though I’ve come of age, yet I manage
The need to be wealthy and yet responsible
For this is the last hood for all mankind
You’ve got to be ready in cash and kind
For without which no man shall see his dream cone true
