boys dont cry
why are they always asked to be though?
and not cry when they feel low?
world will laugh they say.
and thats why they are asked to not show.
they never express how they really feel
but trust me even boys weep alone at night.
tears are not gender specific,
even he needs his space to feel light.
not just me and you,
but every human has their own thing.
boys are emotionless,
is what this world thinks.
its just he’s good at hiding his pain
but that doesn’t mean his heart don’t ache.
even boys shatter, even boys suffer
even boys cry when they break.
when he is asked to take all the load
why is he not allowed to even weep?
why do we ignore him when he express?
when he’s the one sacrificing his sleep.
don’t ignore them be their shoulder when they need.
yes, boys do cry when they broke apart.
they are human after all.
and every human has a heart.
