Boy......Or Man?


The boy denies when guilt is found
The man confesses with grief profound

The boy places blame for what he's done
The man passes blame on to no one

The boy tells lies to cover his acts
The man speaks truth when faced with facts

The boy, with fears, will run away
The man, with tears, will humbly stay

The boy continues with his misdeeds
The man, for help and mercy, pleads

The boy remains in chaos and strife
The man, forgiven, begins a new life

When I was a child,
I spake as a child,
I understood as a child,
I thought as a child:
But when I became a man,
I put away childish things.

I Corinthians 13:11
