“Men don’t cry” I hear them say
but, deep down tears flow anyway.
Our Spirit weeps though we may not
for joy and pain are still our lot.
But pain that weeps within the soul
builds a wall ‘gainst being whole.
There’s wisdom in a single tear
that overwhelms the deepest fear.
Like Yin and Yang are joy and pain;
we need them both to keep us sane.
So tears of pain and tears joy
can make a man out of a boy.
Each tear that falls from one mans eyes
helps to heal the ‘manhood’ lies.
So shed a tear for manhoods sake;
to undo the harm we need a lake!
A lake of tears – a soothing balm;
a warm embrace to heal our harm.
Then we can bathe in joy and bliss;
we’ll find the manhood we all miss.
