A man?

You think you’re so damn cool
You got laid
But what would you do
If a kid was on the way

Would you run and hide
And say it isn’t yours
Would you leave her
To deal with it alone

You said you were a man
So start acting like one
Stop acting like a child
And earn up to your mistakes

You thought you were the big s***
You thought its not your problem
But when that kid is born
It will blame you

Will you forget, will you leave it cold
Will you leave it to wonder
Why you’re not there
Will you leave and let it become
Mad at the world

You are not a man
But a child
Man up and take responsibility

You wanted to be “cool”
So now tell me this
How does it feel
To have your dreams crushed
Just because you couldn’t wait

This is raw.  I feel the emotion seething from it.
