A Need To Cry

A Need To Cry

There are times when a man secretly and emotionally needs to cry,
The pain of internal reasons that are private with no explanations of why.
A mysterious event that flashed before an unwavering heart of stone,
Something that opened the eyes of the mind that penetrated down to the bone.

Don’t know where it was written that a macho man has no time to shed tears,
History has misinterpreted that a grown man doesn’t cry is ancient in years.
Love inside the heart that entails a caring gene that must emit pain of a need,
A calling to reach out and ask for help is what a soul wants so that it too can feed.

A proud man seeks reassurance to cry in public so that he will not feel so weak,
Because he too has seen that passions evolves around us as times are bleak.
The strength of a man should grow when he learns that crying is not a bad thing,
And a love one can ease what hurts so that the happiness to the heart it brings.

There shall always be a need to cry because it is what makes us all human beings,
We were created to feel, the hurt, to love, and to cry until the day we grow wings.
Our bodies bleed, we walk on two feet, we have emotions expressed when we cry,
So there is no reason to feel ashamed of our tears, or a need to explain why.
