A real man shows no emotions
A real man is tough all the time
A real man never cries
A real man is this or that
I have been told my whole life
This is what being a “Man” is all about
What has this brought me
A life of pain that was held inside
Incarcerated into a lie
Today I have broken free
Vulnerability is not a weakness
it is a strength
Showing those close to you what you really are
Brings you closer to them
A real man is a person who, loves, cries, shows his true emotions and is real in how he feels.
For my wife who I was so distant from for so long, who I by my actions almost tore us apart. I love you with all my heart and know that you are and always will be a gift from God.
