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.
