Being a man.

Abstract Dec 26, 2019

He who plays the role of a father,

Sometimes a son and sometimes a brother;

Is the one who made my life so alluring,

He was the one, who went on enduring.

You are strong, you are macho;

You can't cry because you're the honcho!

You can't wear pink,

Why can't these stereotypes sink!

You can't cry like a woman,

You can't listen to her,

No matter what, you can never give up;

You're the chaser, chasing everyday,

"Be a man" is what they always say.

You can be sentimental, you can be tan.

You may not have muscles and still be a man.

Cheers to all the men around the globe,

And cheers to your masculinity,

Each being unique and a symbol of sanguinity.

Don't be too harsh on yourself,

Let your scars speak,

Don't be so shy,

Don't cut off your wings,

you've got miles to fly.
