Men Dont Cry - Poem by Alan Draper

I fell and banged my head
It hurt and bled
Boys dont cry
I will try

Injections needed every day
Carry on its your way
I will try
Lads do not cry

Nice girl for a date
Car broke made me late
Men dont cry
I will try

Wedding day was the best
Staying in will be a test
I will try
Men dont cry

Baby girls I love them too
Even now they're 22
Men dont cry
i will try

Kisses, cuddles the universe
Thats what i miss the worse
I will try
Men do cry

    This is a great poem. It's funny how it is (how men aren't supposed to cry) . (Report)Reply

    A nice collection of emotions and thoughts, but only if it were true and we were stone. (Report)Reply
