Tear of A Broken Man

Tear of A Broken Man

We all heard "boys don't cry"
Men are just heartless and sly
They aren't able to express
Their emotions with any success
For men are the symbol of strength
No matter what their length
Your size doesn't matter at all
If you're a man you stand tall
Men can never be broken
Such a thing is unspoken
Who would ever break a man's pride?
That's even worse than homicide
But a man is a human being
Broken, isn't something worth seeing
But did it happen? it did and it can
Can you feel the weight of the tear of a broken man

    "for men are the symbols of strength", not distress. the last line it should be "tear"s. other wise a great poem. Even with a constitution ours is not a perfect country. only God can make it right when He comes. i believe that will be soon.

    Thanks, I preferred using tear, to emphasize the weight of that tear drop because when its plural it loses its significance.
