Men do cry, too

The boy!
In the midnight,
Looks at the dark sky,
I asked him tonight,
Why are you so shy?
He stayed there, silent,
And stole his eyes away;
His eyes were fixed on the moonlit,
On the cheeks tears were making their way!
It just broke my heart,
As I always looked upto him as happy;
He just said nothing, but;
Asked me to stay,
He cried his heart out,
And I just sat by.
I didn’t ask him what is he sad about!
It wasn’t needed anyway!
Now, he was quiet,
Looking at my way!
He told me, “I come here to cry, alone”.
“The people around don’t allow me to cry,
Cause I am boy and I’ll be a man one day,
Men don’t cry, isn’t it?, they say so!
I am alone, I am sad,
I wanna scream, I wanna cry.”
That’s all he said…
He cleaned his face and smiled at me,
He asked me not to tell anyone and left.
I sat there, for long as I thought,
Is it right that men don’t cry?
Pain doesn’t understand the gender,
It happens and we feel like dying,
And we cry, we all need to shed our tears, Somewhere…
