Strong men do cry. Crying is not a sign of weakness, on the contrary. It shows strength and courage. There was a time when I thought I was weak by crying. However when you get to a point of sadness, where there is no choice.
I think the notion that men should not cry is ridiculous. Men are taught to keep their emotions buried.
I kept mine buried for over twenty years, they just built up and up. I remember the day I disclosed five years ago, the tears just flowed and flowed. That helped initially, like the pressure release on a valve.
The pain of ages
And a sigh of remorse
From dusk to dawn
The hour of the wolf
The time I fear
When I awake in tears
