man up, man up, man up!

man up, man up, man up!
they told me, apparently-
real men never cry.
my feelings made them uncomfortable,
so i told them i was fine.

slowly, i built myself a dam,
to hold my tears at bay.
intrusive thoughts that dared to lurk,
were at once put aside ,, away.
a robotic human with no manual,
no feelings, no emotions and no one to love.

the pressure kept building,
the dam started cracking.
i could not take it anymore.
so i let it overflow.
i let it thrive and the waters lashed, only to realise.
sometimes it’s better to let it go.
