Because I am Man

When I am shattered, I can’t cry,
Have to smile, I have to show off nothing happened,
Because I am man,

 

When I lost, my beloved,
Have to collect myself, I have to carry on,
Because I am man,

 

When I am pierced,
I can’t announce, I have to keep quiet,
Because I am man,

 

When I am being cheated,
Have I to swallow, I have to wear silence,
Because I am man,

 

When I am in agony,
Have to relax, I have to keep calm,
Because I am man,

 

I can’t say I love you, I am not supposed to be emotional,
I can’t say I am sorry, I am not supposed to have weak,
I can’t say I need you, I am not supposed to be fragile,
I can’t say I am exhausted, I am not supposed to be robust,

 

All these, expectations, desires, rules and traditions
of this world, from  this society,  for this gender,
All are good, still, I would say to you
Men are not apathetic.

Please Come Back in My Life

200313448-001

Desert makes us realize what the water is,
Snow makes us realize what the fire is,
Water makes us realize what the air is,
Smoke makes us realize what the sunlight is,
And, now my solitariness makes me realize the importance of yours.

 

Now I know, how much I was fastened to you,
How much I was devoted to you,
How much I was depending on you,
How much I was relying on you.

 

Now I am feeling, understanding all these,
When you are far-far away from me,
When I can’t accompany you,
When I can’t fondle you,
When I even can’t call you back in my life.

 

Without you, it feels like unambitious,
Without you, it feels like missing me,
Without you, it feels like I am incapable,
Without you, it feels like I am oblivion.

 

But now it’s late, too much late,
Nothing could be amended,
Time couldn’t be irreversible,
I hope I can go back to timeline and make myself understand that,

 

How much you are relevant to me,
How much I depend on you,
How much you are inseparable from me,
How much I savor on you,
How much I need you.

 

I covet my words could fly, make sound in your heart, and whisper,
Please come back again in my life.
