Guys Cry, Too    (Continued)

But maybe I shouldn't have bothered, because nothing changed in the end.

When I went to school the next day,
Someone noticed how red my eyes were.
“Are you ok?” He asked. I told him I was fine.
Because real men don't cry.

Of course guys have their moments of sadness too. They are stronger and tougher than girls but it doesn't mean they don't have feelings. Guys are human beings and they have all rights to crack and show emotions ^_^ By the way your poem was so beautifully written. Sad but also very poetic and meaningful. Keep it up and thanks for sharing this. I'd give it 5 stars with no doubt ;)

Societry has really twisted the way we view emotions especially when they're shown by men. It's sad really. It's hard when you're really upset, and you can't cry "because real men can't cry." I like your wording in this poem. And the emotion throughout it. Men should cry; not become emotional rollercoasters. But show their emotions when the time calls for it. Very beautiful.

I do have to agree with you there Mr. Potter, but I've only seen one man really break down and cry. I guess I just haven't met many real men.
