The stages of a man's life

When male babies grow up to become young boys,
It becomes time for them to put away their childhood toys.

In adolescence, they quickly discover love is a very splendid thing,
But two loves can causes a tug of war with their heartstring.

They become men looking for true love that makes life worth living on the edge,
But losing that true love makes them want to fall off the wagon, into druken binge.

Falling in love could be the beginning of the efflorescence of their lives,
Next, they will be asking their ladies to become their lawfully wedded wives.

A married man’s life can becomes an expedition on the borders of wedded bliss,
But losing love this man will most likely become a casualty on lava love’s match list.

Sooner or later that little baby is an old man with few obligations, and an empty nest,
If he is lucky he will still have a loving wife, and a few toys, as he is ready for his final rest.
