What is the measure?

Academic Study Of The Male Figure
Artist: JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

What is the measure of a man?

Is it the the size of his heart,

His compassion for others,

The ability to stand back up 

After the beating life has offered him 

Live and die as you see fit, 

Who is to say you have to live like this?

Its not your importance that matters

Nor your fame how deep your buried 

or the goals you set or the hardship you endured

You and you alone decide how to live

its the impression you left, 

its how far you’ve risen 

Its the pain you overcame

the challenges you faced

♂ 

You are a man Not a machine
