He Hurts Too


They say 'men are stronger'
Which came first, the saying or the strong men?
Faux masculinity passed down generations

Society boosting his fragile ego
Only for reality to bruise it
Sending him to an early grave

They say men are stronger
Is that why he finds it hard to tell me where it hurts?
Which hurts more, the pain or all the strength it takes to hide it?

Is that strength?
Or the just the fear of being perceived as weak

-To the men not afraid to cry
