Men Can Cry

I want you to know
that men can cry
They shouldn’t hold their tears
when loved ones die

And if the deceased
is someone so dear
Don’t be so scared
to drop a tear

I assure you
that I feel your pain
Tell me what good it does
if silent you remain?

Instead, be yourself
and express your sorrow
Shed your tears
and in your grief wallow

Shout, scream
and call up her name
Even though
society considers it a shame
