A short Poem on International Men’s Day. Tuesday, 19 November
The society has been telling young boys
not to show emotion
and be laughed if did.
Next, they wonder
how come many of the men
cannot define what they feel.
In its try to mould into manhood;
men and boys are shackled in
So, what they need
is a bit of more understanding;
for they have childhood stories untold.
there are some scars, invisible
and needs love as healing.
