waiting for a title
I have often wondered, what makes a boy into a man?

Is it the first time he has sex?
Or just the first time he does it well?

Is it when he drives his first car?
Or when he wins his first race?

Is it when he can puff on a cigar?
Or the first time he enjoys it?

Is it when he can chug a fifth of whiskey?
Or when he relaxes with a stiff drink?

Is it when he moves out of his parents house?
Or when he moves out on his own?

Is it when he finds himself a wife?
Or some time after she tames him?

Just what is it that turns a boy into a man?

I like the title the way you have now, "waiting for a title". A title to be either to be a boy or man, or something else. It also made me think again what make a girl into a woman. Thank you.

Good question about the wife and being tamed! I tend to think a boy becomes a man at the birth of his first child. For me, that came at age 40 years. Elton
