They say that a man isn't supposed to cry, but I don't know.

Define crying. What are tears,

when they’re running down your cheek?

Are the droplets full of fears,

Implying that you’re weak?

Is it an act of a woman,

or a child and not a man?

What’s a man who sheds tears,

when life gets out of hand?

Is he indeed a man,

or are his tears castration?

If so what’s the etiquette,

for extreme past facing?

See me I wish to cry,

Scream the wind from my lungs,

Yet no matter the sadness,

The tears never come,

I believe tears are for cleansing,

Like bleach for the soul,

Removing darkness from joy,

Warming a heart that’s turned cold,

Timeless times without tears,

My soul is heavy stained,

Crying only on the inside,

And it flows like heavy rain,

I want to fall to my knees,

And weep like a child,

Weeping inconsolably,

Until its painless to smile,
