i didn’t have much to brag about

at the time


he was only a year or two older

but had life times more experience

told me of all the women he had been with


conversation was always short

on my end

hadn’t gone very far

second base



though i never fully understood that analogy

(still don’t today)

keep hearing different versions

but i knew he considered himself the mvp


the champ

big kahuna

and many other names

many he coined himself


i created insecurities that summer

of what it meant to be a man

in my mind


i didn’t like what i saw

was afraid of myself

was afraid of what i was going to become



i’m still not a man

to his definition

no man he’s ever seen



but i am something much better
