I am a Man
Underneath all these clothes I’m wearing only pants
And underneath the pant I have got skin
Lots of skin that covers all my real nakedness
Lots of skin that covers all my emotions and thoughts
Lots of skin that cover all my beauty and Ugliness
So much skin you think it would be hard to pierce 
Skin so thick you would feel it can take whatever is thrown at it
So thick you would think I can’t feel the pain
Why do you think this way? I am a Man right?
I have no right to feel pain
I have no right to show my emotions
I have no right to be sad inside and out
You know what? You are right 
I must be strong 
I can’t feel any pain
What is pain? No Weakness! 
Even when I’m broken inside out 
I MUST BE A MAN
