Men Do Cry

A beautiful poem



Men-Do-Cry


I heard quite often “men don’t cry” Though no one ever told me why So when I fell and skinned a knee No one came to comfort me.And when some bully boy at schoolWould pull a prank so mean and cruelI’d quickly learn to turn and quip

“It doesn’t hurt”, and bite my lip.
So as I grew to reasoned years I learned to stifle any tears. Though “be a big boy” it began, Quite soon I learned to ” be a man”. And I could play that stoic role While storm and tempest wracked my soul No pain or setback could there be
Could wrest one single tear from me.
Then one long night I stood nearby And helplessly watched my son die, And quickly found to my surprise That all that tearless talk was lies. And still I cry and have no shame I cannot play that ” big boy” game, And openly without remorse
I let my sorrow take it’s course.
So those of you who can’t abide A man you’ve seen whose often cried, Reach out to him with all your heart
As one whose life’s been torn apart.
For men do cry when they can see Their loss of immorality. And tears will come in endless streams
When mindless fate destroys their dreams.
