The Shedding Of A Boy To A Man - Poem by Quantel Smith

The shedding of a boy to a man

Time to grow from the toys that have been provided
Let time slip and for what's to be decided
Not a day goes by this boy has thoughts
About his days of suffering for the times of rot
Though through the process of years of heartache with a sad pass
Just him being strong growing up so fast
So as he see the world for what it has to offer
He seems its harder to get softer
Now he is a man trying to do what he can
Understand and comprehend in this world of demons angels and men
He fights every day to improve the defeat
Which has struck him within his body and through his feet
Laughter is all he has
Shedding from a boy to man has been passed.
