Any individual who thinks for themselves, and laughs in the face of authority. Someone who goes against the grain in several aspects of their life, and is publically chastised for doing so. A person who refuses to bend to the conventions of society. A natural born leader. Unconventional in their wisdom, and accutely aware of their surroundings at all times. Often alienated for being so.
"The Motorcycle Boy, in SE Hinton's novel 'Rumble Fish', was definitely a wayward son."

Get the wayward son mug.
Greatest song by rock band KANSAS, better than Point of No Return by a longshot. Simple to air guitar to, even easier to sing/improv to. Used in the greatest show on earth, SUPERNATURAL, and regrettably not getting enough attention. Best when sung as a a duet with an amanda, whilst leg-guitaring.
v: Carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done. Lay your weary head to rest, don't you cry no more!
amanda: DU DU, DU DU, DSH!
both: engage in epic leg guitar.
