i was recently asked "what is it to be a man and how would you define a man from a boy?"
so here's my answer.
a boy runs away, a man fights with dignity. a boy cheats, a man fights fair. a boy holds back the tears in fear of looking weak, a man will cry for beauty. a boy picks fights, a man fights only for honour or to protect the ones he holds dear to him. a BOY searches for trouble and a MAN searches for a solution.
what makes a man is the willingness to die for what he believes in, no matter how stupid or ridiculous, if he truly believes in it, a man will either lose with dignity or win with dignity. in a fight if a man CAN stand, he WILL stand. he will stand for justice, he will stand for honour, he will stand for dignity, he will stand for those he loves, he will stand to learn about himself better. if you consider yourself a man, not a boy, then tell me. tell me what makes YOU a man, tell me what YOU fight for.
joke answers will always exist, but at least think about my question to you.
thank you and may your battles be worthy.
