Hey Young Man
“Hey young man!” I ignored and kept walking, then the man called out again “hey young man” then I looked back and behold he beckoned me. I went to him, he asked me for directions and I was able to help being my neighbourhood.
I proceeded on my journey, then it dawned on me, the man just called me a young man, is it that I am getting old or since when did I become a man? I could have sworn that just yesterday I gained admission into the university but then seriously, I am a final year student now, time flies indeed.
Then I ask myself, am I prepared for the role of a man? Do I really have a plan for my future? Besides attending classes, reading and waiting for pocket money am I really developing myself? If I didn’t realise I have become a man then do I really know myself? Tons of questions kept coming and I just had no answer.
This, my friends, became the turning point in my life. That moment marked the beginning of me, you know today. That man’s words “hey young man” opened my eyes to who I was, who I am and who I can be. Do you know who you are? Do you have a plan for tomorrow? Take away your parents and your certificate, would you be able to define yourself.
Hey young men and ladies, are you up to the task?
