It is ok for men and boys to cry. I do!

Men Cry, I do!

By: Joe Attanasio

I have more to ponder, as I get older

I am reluctant to give a cold shoulder

I pay close attention to what people say

Every word I carefully weigh

My values have changed

Or at least rearranged

So many things, I cannot lie

Nowadays make me cry

I used to have the heart of a man

At least when young, that's how I began

Now so many things I find dear

Tax my heart and bring a tear

I am not ashamed to care

I dare to let my soul be bare

I don't care what others say

Head games I don't play

My armor is old but strong

I know what's right and wrong

I do not have much apathy

So many things mean a lot to me

Injustice makes me choke

My feelings I don't cloak

Today I saw the movie "Hugo"

And my tears, I let go

I feel sorry for some men

That never shed a tear when

Their hearts get heavy and ache

Their composure will not break

Just saying, how I feel

My words and emotions are real

No matter boy or man

If you need to, cry if you can

If you have the urge to cry

Don't hold back until you die

Go ahead and let it fly

It matters not if you're a guy!
