How Would I Have Stood?

What is a man,
What do I have to be?
Is it unspoken,
why does it have to be?
I have been alone,
I have had my thoughts.
Here's what I would say to me.
Don't be afraid, don't hide behind,
speak your heart, take your time.
How would I have known?
How would I have stood?
How would I have grown?
It's nothing but time, take a chance,
speak your heart, don't hide behind.
Take a chance, live a life,
dance a dance.

Walk around, find your place,
don't waste your time.
Speak a truth, just hold her hand.
I am not alone, I have my thoughts,
Who is a man.
