Becoming Man

December 8, 2012 § 16 Comments

A moustache:

A sign for men to show how much

Man one has

On his top lip.

It is a statement of who we are

As men,

Boys no more.

We have left the ship of puberty

And now are fully formed,

We have our responsibilities

To hold and not to scorn.

We inhale our sense of power,

Our strength seethes in our lungs.

We are the breadwinner, the father, the husband;

No longer just the son.

(A quick note: this is not meant to be some wild aim to enforce patriarchy, it is more to celebrate the manly persona)
