Man Up!

by Robby Williams Sr.

Falling by the wayside, with nothing tangible to hold on to. 
Our young men are headed to becoming an endangered species. 
Searching for answers! Tell me what can we do?

Clergymen will tell us to pray, but will that be enough?

Prayer is only the key that opens up the doors, 
but they need to see real men walking throughout those doors, 
leading by example the way Abraham did to give a testimony of his faith.

While we have our heads in the sand we allow alcohol abuse, 
HIV aids, drugs abuse etc. to run rampant 
and continue to grow at an alarming rate. 

Thatís rough!

Man up I says! Each one teaches one so that we can round up 
as many young men as we can.

Man up I says!  Reach out to them so that they will realize 
that there is someone offering a helping hand. 

We canít stop pursuing greatness at the end of every church service, 
because there is too much work that needs to be done.

Walking away after shaking many hands and hugging many necks, 
as if weíve done our reasonable service unto the Lord.

Man up I says! Although many of us are still fighting to win back our young men, 
we can see the staggering numbers that have falling by the wayside, 
on course to a dreadful end.

Man up I says! Man up! We must become more aggressive in this battle. 
We must fight too win.
