Men Don’t Cry

The pain not to cry
men-dont-cry

Men Don’t Cry

Hardened by life’s journey of sold
All the emotions packed tight into an endless hole
Bastard child or broken home
Parents loving
Some have it all

No room for emotions to show.

Tears held back by moments that decide
Love, pain, anger and sadness for the eyes.

Cry inside
Cry on your own
Cry in the church close to your home.

Tears wiped before others can see
Men don’t cry for strangers to see
Soulless in moments that need hold
Emotions deciding on the choices to be bold.

Men Don’t Cry
Men Don’t Cry
Men Don’t Cry

Men showing Men how to hide the pain within
Boys crying
Girls screaming
Women shedding tears for women.

Men’s eyes wobbling
Veins bursting with purple fire and pride
Keeping the emotions locked within
Is this a dreadful sin?

Men cry on their own
Hidden from faces
Who tell all the stories of old.
