What makes a man?
Is it the waves in his hair
or when he sees a beautiful lady
the way he stops to stare.

Is he a man
by the firmness of his butt
or is he a man by the way his hair is cut?

Is he a man
by the buffness of his chest
or is he a man
because he can stand God's test?

What makes a man
Is it the roughness of his hands
the compassion for others
or the size of his pants?

Is he a man
because of the tears he cries
or is he a man
by the way that he lies?

Is he a man
by the number of women he's had in his bed?
or is he a man
by his actions instead?

What makes a man?
Is it the tone of his voice
the sweat that rolls down his chest
or by the maturity of his choice?

Is he a man
by the way he performs his "duty"
or is he a man
because he's seen with a cutie?

Is he a man
by the way he treats his wife
the actions he takes
or by the way he lives his life?

What makes a man?
Is it the way he gets on his knees to pray?
his emotions that he hides or shows
or the way he takes life day-by-day?

Is he a man
by how much liquor he can hold?
or is he a man
because he's courageous and bold?

Is he a man
by what he does right and wrong
or is he a man
by his strength that makes him strong?

Is he a man
by his amount of money
or is he a man
by the way he gets a"honey"?

What makes a man?
Is it his education,
his bank roll, cash flow, his past,
or his occupation?

Is he a man
by his swagg
the way he dresses, his style, his fashion,
or the way that he saggs?

He is a man
because of the example he sets
the way he treats a lady, lives life,
He is a man by God's standards he's met.

Outstanding, Marquanda! I am so, so proud of you and what you have done with your writing. This poem is my very favorite. Your insight is incredible. These thoughts need to be shared with every young woman.

Finally, someone who understands the morals of a Christian man and one that isn't going to be married because of his physique. Great job!
