What does it mean to be a man

What does it mean to be a man,
To take the pain then take a stand
Or never show an ounce of fear,
God forbid you leak a tear
To be so stubborn and obnoxious,
To drink all night and not get nauseas
To go work and bring home the bacon,
To have some skills like the guy in “Taken”
To play a game of catch with your son,
Well my father must of missed that one
Actually he missed much more,
I have a question “Why’d you leave me for?”
Was it cuz I made a mess or spilled grape juice on mom’s dress,
Or maybe cuz I forgot my chores, I swear to god I’ll sweep the floors
You cant lie now I can see,
truth is that it wasn’t me
You didn’t want to be tied down,
so you left me with this frown
The lies you tell yourself at night,
for 18 years your out of sight
what does it mean to be a man?,
if you can’t tell me then who can?

Alone – Sad Poems

From childhood’s hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

I’m sorry

I’m sorry for everything you’ve been through
It must’ve been very hard on you
I’m sorry for all that’s been said and done
I was the moon, you were the sun
I’m sorry for not making everything right
But the situation I was in, was very tight
I’m sorry for not lending you a hand
If only I could be a better friend
I’m sorry if it seemed like I didn’t care
Lucky for you, your special- someone was there
I’m sorry for breaking your heart
For forgiveness, where do I start?

I’m Hiding Deep Inside

Can no one see this smile I’m faking,
See how, inside, I’m constantly shaking?
These people all claim they know me well,
Yet no one can see through my crumbling shell?

“I’m fine”, I whisper, my sadness unknown,
They leave me to deal with this anguish alone.
I’ve hidden behind this wall most of my life,
I’ve managed so far, I’ve dealt with my strife.

Watching as, slowly, my blood leaks away,
It helps to keep life’s true horrors at bay.
I pull down my sleeve to cover my hurt,
For approaching footsteps, I’m on the alert.

I guess my pretense is just all too real,
No one has to know of the pain that I feel.
The real me inside, where no one can see,
I can fool everyone else, why can’t I fool me?

The Girl In The Mirror

I told the girl in the mirror
I didn’t like her hair
I asked the girl in the mirror
Why she was always there
I reminded the girl in the mirror
Not to look at me that way
I asked the girl in the mirror
Why she never had anything to say

The girl in the mirror
Well she didn’t like that
The girl in the mirror
upon her chair she sat
Now the girl in the mirror
Is no longer my best friend
Some times I wonder if
I should put her to an end

Alone – Sad English Poems

I am alone,
so very alone

I hurt,
so very bad

I am ignored,
just thrown aside

I am security,
for others to have

I am lonely,
there is no one close,
no one sees the pain

I cry,
hope is gone

I am alone,
and no one knows

You Meant So Much – Sad Poems

You meant so much to all of us
You were special and that’s no lie
You brightened up the darkest day
And the cloudiest sky

Your smile alone warmed hearts
Your laugh was like music to hear
I would give absolutely anything
To have you well and standing near

Not a second passes
When you’re not on our minds
Your love we will never forget
The hurt will ease in time

Many tears I have seen and cried
They have all poured out like rain
I know that you are happy now
And no longer in any pain
