I am a man

I can’t cry,

I have been told,

“Men don’t cry”.

I can’t feel depressed,

Can’t feel weak,

As I have been told,

It goes against how I should act,

Even if she cheats,

Her friends says,

“All men are the same”.

If I don’t drink or smoke,

My friends call me pussy,

If I listen to my Mom,

My girl calls “mama’s boy”,

If I listen to my her,

Mother says “I am gone”.

If I talk to every girl,

I am a playboy,

If she texts other men,

I am possessive and mean.

I work hard, sleep less,

These days, I don’t get grouchy,

Over food, I stopped demanding,

I can’t blame,

Have to pretend, I am strong,

I am a man.

This piece of shit is dedicated to all my fellow men..

Happy International men’s day

  1. I had this conversation with my brother last night. He was talking about the perceived expectations of men while I was talking about those for women. I called him to read this since it added to what we were discussing, and he said there’s a lot of truth to it. Nicely done.
