What Does It Mean to Be a Man?

What does it mean to be a man?
Does it mean that I can stand
upon the ground with solid feet
and firmly shake a hand when greet?

Do I have to win the bread?
When I sit at table's head,
will I cite the evening prayer
that promotes my loving family's care?

Will I have to save the world?
When I do my best to raise my girl,
will she turn to me and smile,
"Daddy will you walk me down the aisle?"

What does it mean to be a man?
Is it something one can plan
when what they saw from their own dad
is the same old question all men had?
