POEM| Dear Men, Cry If You Want To

Dear men,
cry if you want to
“big boys don’t cry” is a lie
coined to confuse you
intimidate you
and deceive you
It’s okay to feel sad
It’s okay to feel bad
It’s okay to feel hurt
because every emotion is valid
Ask for help when you need it
When you need assistance, seek it
Guess what?
Vulnerability can be sexy
You don’t have to be strong all the time.

  1. Really moving and important poem. There is such a stigma around men feeling as if they have to hide their feelings and can’t cry or show any kind of emotion which is so wrong!
