Boy Becomes Man

When a boy becomes man

what does he feel

does he feel excitement or joy

no he feels nothing more

than horror

of his own freedom ending

freedm to dream, freedom to hope

until he is conform by society's grasp

stagnated potential left unchecked

in a cubicle made of plastic and glass

typing away the joys of life

to a blinking screen with nothing to hide

so when a boy becomes a man

he should'nt always fear

life always takes turns

to different careers

only those who take life to the norm

will never attained their true potential

unless the young boy dreams big

never too small

than as a man he will dream

beyond the world and all.
