Grow up to be gentle,
be a citizen,
be a listener,
be a shield, and be shielded in return,
be a song, and be sung to in return.
Be a helping hand, not a stomping boot – not a striking fear kind of guy,
not a “it was her own fault” kind of guy,
not a complicit kind of guy,
not a dangerous and sly kind of guy, who’ll expect everything and deserve nothing but to be taught a lesson.
