sometimes it is okay to cry?

« previous entry | next entry »

i feel pain swelling
deep inside it grows
silently screaming
only i can know

no reason to scream
they wouldnt understand
they cant know the pain
i am a man

loss of something
even when it is bad.
tears swelling
a cry must be had

you dont know
how could you understand?
i havent said why
i am a man.

wait
that is a lie
i am a man
but i do cry

i shed tears in vain...
sometimes
i cry when it rains
or when in pain

i am a man
and i say this loud
i cry
i am proud.

nah, beauty tends to trip me up. i would mumble and probably not be so smooth.

if i wasn't all that attracted to you, i would be a smooth as silk.

funny how that works.

That poem is so touching. I hate it when men think that just because they're men, they can't cry. Very emotional, very beautiful. Very well done. :)

"be a man, get your fucking ass up. dont cry like a little baby."

years of it being engrained. it isnt what men think, it is what they are programmed to follow.

i love reading your writings. i believe guys should cry too. dont bottle up your emotions. although if im with a guy when he cries i end up crying to. its humbling to see a guy cry too.

an ex of mine once said to me, "you are more a girl than i am" because i can cook, sew, take care of myself, decorate, and show emotion.

silly me for thinking that is okay... or silly her for not thinking it is.

In society we label and we judge, and life goes on....
Little boys grow to be men who are emotionless, and hollow....

I say cry and be free of judges and labels ....

All I have to say is that I wish I could write shitty poetry (is that what it's called? It reads more like something a 15 year old girl would write)and get all the chicks.

"I cry, I am proud"

do you have any idea how cheesy this is.

tears swelling
a cry must be had

PASSIVE VOICE!

*has a cry, with herself, because it must be had, for I need to be proud*

and it's funny that everyone thinks it's great...if you want to read what real poetry should be like, here are a few links for you.

Please, keep on stabbing, maybe you might hit a vital organ. I read your links and they are also beautiful, but who are you to judge someone. So what if you think this is cheesy?

Could you write something better and let these people be the judge of that? Maybe you should lurk elsewhere.

Thanx and bye.

wow you are great! i wish i could write half as good as you do. but then again i'm only 13 so i still have more to go through. but now i'm very inspired by you and i really hope i can be as great as you someday. i think it's great you share this with people because i always feel like that and i feel like i can't tell anyone. that's why i have a journal. Anyways...thanks. for putting what you put in here and inspiring me. 13 year old girls go through the same thing.

I stubbled across your journal. looking for the LJ client to download, and I came across your poem. I can not put into words, just how beautiful and touching it was. Its nice to know that even though you are a man, you show emotions.

i was just checking out "similar interests" and stumbled upon your journal. What struck me was the fact that you have like 10 million comments per entry. Impressive. So i started asking myself how someone gets that popular on lj. I think you're about the only straight male to pop up under my similar interests. i think i'm not alone here. hhmmm... i think that came out the wrong way but oh well.

anyways... lovely poem.
