These beliefs that have been accepted,
and the opinions that have been married,
That men are not allowed to cry;
You must hold your emotions
Because these things stop you
from being a man.
That you must be a man,
even if being a man is not an option.
That you must turn your mind into a war front,
Battling between societal judgment and people’s opinions
Just to maintain the title of a man.
A man enough.
And it is all fair to some,
The ones who place their chairs by God’s table
To judge without considering,
and infer men’s emotions as weakness.
But how much knowledge is enough to speak for a gender,
And how many questions can address perception?
Because men are the opponents in a wicked story,
And the victim of a silly belief.
Though men are human,
And humans have emotions.
