Be A Man


Be strong,

Protect your sisters and your mother,

Work hard,

Go to school,

Study the ‘right’ thing,

Get a job,

Get a wife,

Have children

Take care of your family,

Do all the manly work


Don’t show weakness,

When you are stressed just keep it to yourself,

Or go drink with the boys,

Don’t shed tears


You keep so much to yourself,

You pretend like its all okay,

Even when you are falling apart inside,

You’d rather be a man,

Than a coward,

You keep it all to yourself,

You take it out on others,

When those that care ask what’s wrong,

You keep quiet or get angry


Someone made the rules,

You are just following them
