I'm A Wanna Be

I’ve been thinking about who I am and who I might be

I used to think I was a loser, but I lost many of the things that made me so

Actually, I just never did these earthly things that make everyone the same as everyone

I have always been an outcast, a unique difference, an uncharacterized characteristic

People used to tell me I was different, but I knew it was a negative thing

People now tell me I am different, and I know it is a good thing

I ask myself, “Who do I want to be?”

Well, I’ll tell myself who I want to be

I want to be the man kids want to be because of my influence

I want to be the man who God gives the battles to because I can win the war

I want to be the man a woman looks at and envies the beauty I am with

I want to be a man that makes being faithful cool

I want to be a man that makes a woman think of the future when she thinks of me

I want to be a man that is the most interesting man in the world

I want to be a man that makes every situation his home field advantage

I want to be a man that helps people nourish their faith

I want to be a man that never turns down a good debate

I want to be a man that is the king of all trades

I want to be a man that doesn’t quit on the people and dreams he adores

I want to be a man other men are afraid to be

I want to be a man other men don’t know how to be

I want to be a man that is an example and not a body who just spews words

I want to be a man that loves like Kanye loves himself

I want to be a man that segways the bad to good

I want to be a man that is as unique as big words like prolific, luxuriant, and reputable

I want to be a man that changes the content of bad meanings

I want to be a man whose words give foundations to build upon

I want to be a man whose ideas are imported into every mind for the betterment of self

I want to be a man that frees his mind from the imprisonment of stupidity

I want to be a man that can teach business, finances, faith, and love

I want to be a man whose creativity sets new boundaries on what is creative

I want to be a man that ends the debate on controversial subjects

I want to be a man that is the living embodiment of The Bible

I want to be a man my woman looks at and thinks to herself, “How did I get so lucky?”

I want to be a man my woman wished for as she blew out her birthday candles

I want to be a man my woman prayed for when her ex did her wrong and she thought all men are the same

I want to be a man my woman hoped for when she wished upon a shooting star

I want to be a man my woman would have wanted to build in a build-a-bear workshop

I want to be a man my son wants to grow up to be like and my daughter hopes to marry someday

I want to be a man where being a superhero is average to me

I want to be a man God has faith in

I just want to be a man who changes the world

They say one man can change the world, but I’m still trying to change myself for me, you, my family, my son, my daughter, my friends, and most importantly, for God. Being legendary is a day to day struggle. Some days I don’t grow. Other days I grow so much I don’t know how to handle it or simply don’t know how to use what I’ve learned. Some days I want to force what I’ve learned onto others because of the benefits. Sometimes I don’t want to be bothered. Sometimes I want to bug the life out of everyone. I’ve learned there is no guideline to becoming a man. Today, we have all these simpletons calling themselves men when they can’t even wash their own laundry.  All these perplexed men are leaving others scorned and scarce with emotional resources. I look at these people and think God really made this person, lol. To me, every person's mindset it Walmart and mine is Nordstroms. I don’t want to be bloated with my own nonsense so I’ll stop here. I want to be a man before I become the man.

I want to be a man I’m proud of when I look into the mirror

And if I stop being who I am I’ll stray towards who I might be.
