Boys Don’t Cry

Boys don’t cry
though we have
tear ducts
in our eyes

boys don’t cry
the sign of
weakness
is far from us

boys don’t cry
middle school
high school
dry your eyes

college campus
car accident
addiction too
hard to quit

wife is gone
the job too
not knowing
what to do

rage
scream
abuse
don’t dream

other men
don’t cry
how could I

I want to
but can’t
no one ever
told me
why
