We are here today to ask you to embrace your maleness,
These are thought to be traditional male traits,
and although they sometimes carry a negative connotation,
they can be worn with distinction,
as a MAN.
The trouble comes when you fail to make a complete
transition from boyhood to manhood.
Then these beautiful gifts are misunderstood
Let yourselves step into what it truly means to be a man.
Feel pride in your gender.
When the transition from being a boy, with that lack of self control,
is complete and all the rough edges have smoothed away,
then you have masculinity tempered with wisdom and heart.
There is a sense of responsibility that we want you to feel
as you carry your
and Courage into the world.
A boy is reckless with these amazing attributes
and can abuse them, using them as weapons.
Walk as a man thru the world.
Proud and tall.
With an intention of service.
Then feel a renewed confidence,
as you navigate your Strength
with the beauty of your Courage
and Wisdom mixed with Power.
There is nothing more beautiful !
