HE

He was taught not to cry not to feel
if angered not to speak but to beat.
He was taught not to think not to just be
from birth a man he was told to be.
He was told he had to control he had to lead
if he was sad or hurt he was told in himself the emotions to keep.
He was told not to sing not to dance not to read
only to do things that help him be what they think a man must be.
He was pressured to have a big chest and masculine arms
and told to use it on all those who do not have it.
If this the man he is taught to be
then how do we expect him a true man to be.
Its time we teach him that he doesn’t have to control
its okay to express what he feels.
And assure him it makes him no less a man
and for sure a better human bieng.
