What Makes a Man?


This is dedicated to all the real men out here working hard, taking care of home, and who truly know how to love.

What Makes a Man?

Is it his hands?
His eyes
His lips
His shoulders

What Makes a Man?

Is it his brain?
His money
His attitude
His walk

What he thinks makes a man
and what I think makes a man don’t compare
A man keeps it real with me at all times
Even when it hurts
Because he knows the truth will set us free

A man does not just look at me and think sex
He thinks beauty
And when we make love
He seeks to please me

A man takes care of me and his children
He almost never comes first
This is what makes a man

He is your brother, your father, your lover, and your friend
This is what makes a man

He works hard
He hustles
He protects
This is what he was born to do
