Of course, boys can cry!

Of course, boys can cry!

Face flushed as blood gushed, 
watery saltiness felt,
behind nose and eyes.

"Are you OK, dear?"
No, please don't make me cry more!
But thanks, for being here!

"It's OK to cry!"
"That's because you are a girl!
They say boys don't cry!"

"I have seen dad cry.
In history, great men cried.
Of course, boys, can cry!"

This Haiku tells why boys and men can and should cry, as great men did, too, in history! God makes tears for a reason! So, it’s OK to cry!

  2. My body needs laughter as much as it needs tears. Both are cleansers of stress. Mahogany SilverRain
