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.
