A Letter to Men 

They tell you man up 

And boys don’t cry 

Show no weakness 

Wipe the tears from your eyes 


They say that you’re feminine when you show any emotion

You must display dominance or they will be a commotion 

You can’t be depressed you must keep it together 

Put a brave face on whatever the weather 


The social expectations forced upon men 

Continues to emerge over and over again 


We cannot place a gender into a box

‘Cos anyone who doesn’t fit is ridiculed and mocked 

Not every man will be the alpha male 

We cannot continue to let toxicity prevail 


Don’t tell your friend he needs to “Man up” 

He’s definitely man enough! 

Get educated, get smart 

Don’t be ignorant and laugh 


Men can cry, they can be depressed 

They can break down, they can get stressed 

Be there for your friends, with a listening ear 

Don’t judge, be open and be kind to your peers.
