A new life at 67.Can a woman start all over again?

I had a message today from someone telling me he was alone,lost, and frightened.

Not very unusual you might think, except it didn’t come from a child.

Why shouldn’t he say that. Because grown men don’t admit things like that, and especially not to women.

Men don’t cry.But it’s all the more moving if you experience one doing it.

I found a poem that I felt summed it all up rather well and I hope the writer Goood Knight Poet, wont mind me sharing parts of it with you.

All Men are little Boys.

then just like that,we are no longer little boys.

But grown men.

And yet we are still little boys in our heart.”

“And yet as we grow-

Big boys don’t cry,except in our hearts,

But we dont show it”.

Where are you?

I feel so alone and afraid so often,

My tears are everywhere,and nobody even notices”

I am so glad that I know a man that can admit how he feels.

I’m glad I know Peter Pan.

    hiii I liked ur post very much:) & it is so true that men are little boys.
    Also I would like to say that ,I like men who express themselves even in crying…coz this doesn’t mean that they are weak ..but that they are kind hearted & they can easily feel it if someone they know(close to them )is hurt .
    regards:)

  3. Thankyou both for calling by.

    Gamb,you are right about the tears,but I dont’t think I want too many,after all we are supposed to be the weaker sex.

  5. Hi Smith,
    Nice to hear from you again.
    I hope he sees it that way too.

  6. Ever met any guys in their 20s in the Marine Corps that have done tours of duty over in Iraq? They’ve sacrificed years of their life, suffered to maintain the freedom you enjoy, and have seen and dealt with things that your mind couldn’t even begin to comprehend or deal with. But of course, every man remains a little boy, right?

    Your ignorance is amazing. Get a grip.

  7. Mr X
    Not a terribly flattering comment.You obviously didn’t understand what I meant. If you are an Iraq War vetaran I can feel for you.But I am certainly not ignorant.Just for the record,I was an Air Evac.nurse working for the USAF during the Vietnam War.Ever heard about that one.?
