Who I Am

Being the sum total of so many boys and men
It’s almost impossible to answer with a pen
Yes a pencil and eraser is what I’ll truly need
To change each answer after I done each deed

To reach the growth of where I now stand
You have to climb up and down some stairs if you can
Milestones round every corner and straight way
I grew a little more outside myself you could say

Every turn may require a question from you
You may as well grab my hand so we can talk to
Putting on paper an answer that is so unique
I dare you to try before you and I speak
