“MAN”

“Be a man!! Don’t weep like a girl dude! “
“Why so much makeup? Guys don’t put so much of it!”
“You help your mom,wife in house chores! That’s commendable and surprising!!”

May I ask why??
Why can’t men cry??
They’re made of metals.. aren’t they? When one trembles and fall down ..
The knee scratches and bleeds.. it hurts!
And it hurts irrespective of gender!
Or you’ll now say the blood’s aware of the knee’s owner?
When love breaks a heart.. the heart cries ..
Let it be a girl or any other guy!

Girls wearing makeup – “oh wow! So pretty and gorgeous.. “
When a guy loves to wear it, why’s there a whisper or fuss?
Makeup can uplift ones mood,
Let it be a lady or a dude!

Girls being told “you should learn house chores, cooking meals and to wash clothes”
When a guy learns the same, voice comes “You know how to cook? Impressive! You help at house works? Wow! You know how to sweep dirty floors? Great man!!”
Why? Aren’t the guys even living with family in their home? Aren’t they a part of it?
Why would he listen adjectives that highlights this works differently and not a part of growing up?
Cooking, washing clothes aren’t gender based works anymore!
It’s a basic need! Guys feel hungry too and might want to cook for selves or for family, wanna wash clothes too!

BE A MAN!! They say? What’s the definition of “Being a Man” then?
You are a man..you can’t cry,
•You are a man you should know to drive!
•You only earn bread, wife will cook it!
•Don’t share everything that hurts.. you can handle your pain alone man!!
Is this what a man is? Is it what makes a MAN?
NO!!!


A man is also human, his heart cries too!
His eyes also sheds tears.
When the heart breaks it makes inner noise inside him too!!
He can highlight his cheekbones , can go beauty salons, can cook, can wash dishes! And if needed can hit back the critics too!

Don’t bind his life in the quote saying “Be a man!!”
Rather give the space for him to be a Human!
A human is always a human!
Doesn’t matter men or women

The social stereotypes limits them
Limits them from being ownselves!

A real man is the one,
Who can choose to wear makeup or not
Who can choose pink,neon or any color apart from blue also as his favourite if he wants
Who can earn as well as cook bread and food
And the one who if needed can CRY HIS HEART OUT!!
Most importantly if also he doesn’t drive a car, can STAND UP WHEN THERE’S SOMETHING HAPPENING WRONG OR RUDE!!

Man who can both cry out loud and protest out loud is an actual man!!
Any human who can cry out is strongest in the clan !
Those who aren’t allowed to do so, are just ones whom you are trying to make a robot with a cover of
so called Man”

    That’s simply an outstanding piece of beautifully ornamented words…✨
    Gender stereotype starts from a mother’s womb and continues till the ash in the crematorium…
    That’s a sad part of our society.
    But, as long as these type of mindset as described in the poem, our darkened society will always hold a earthen lamp of hope
    And be a dope 😄💙

    You have aptly raised this age-old issue of gender discrimination. But now things are changing for the better. The mindset is changing fast. When I was in eighth standard, my mom made me learn how to make roti and sabzi. Now I’m not required to make, but I can do even now. I think learning anything is welcome. As regards crying, I think a better and stronger person is one who doesn’t suppress his or her emotions. I loved the way you have dealt with the issue.👍💖

      Absolutely!! It’s really changing for better now and hope it’ll continue to.
      Yes cooking is simply a basic need , So that we don’t have to depend on anyone to feed us when we are alone..
      And very truly said sir, a person who doesn’t suppress his/her emotion is the strongest one!

  15. Our society has decided what a man and a woman should do!!
    They have already decided certain things and when a person wants to do something of their choice, they laugh about it!!
    What I hate the most is when people say stuff like “don’t cry like women” or hey, “why she is dressed like a man”
    Such mentality needs to change
    also, a great work, best wishes
