It's tough when you have no one to share your pain with,
no shoulders to lean on to.
No one to hug.
And that's when he embraces the darkness of his room
which hugs him with the same intensity
as he cries his heart out.

"Men don't cry"
A lie that has been engraved in the very fabric of our society shuns the normal human feelings and puts sentimental men to shame. We are humans and we are emotional beings. It is okay to feel and to express those feelings in smiles and tears irrespective of the gender. Men too feel and should be allowed to express themselves without tags. Men cry too, and its okay.
