I wanted to be a pillar
Against all that can break
Steady against the waves
Without taking on the pain
Taking everything in my stride
Letting no harm pass
Into the crevices of my mind
I wanted to be the man
With that fierce mentality
Who knew all about brutality
While being one of the friendliest guys
You wouldn’t wanna get on the wrong side of him
But he’d sooner help you than get in a fight
I wanted to be that man
But I’m nothing
Without you by my side.

I’m much too weak
To don this mask of manhood
I am much too angry
To be fueled by something good
I wish I could say I’d grown up
But I’m only here for the sake of showing up
I am going to keep this short. Because i’m feeling like a lazy gorilla.
We’re getting it wrong. It shows itself all the time. We’re getting it fucking wrong.
We continue to make the same mistakes.
The mistake in HOW we talk mens issues.
I hear the same shit everytime. Wanting to allow men to ‘open’ up and show their ‘weaknesses’ We have been saying it for years now.
Do you know what the real problem is? Are you really ready to hear it?
You want weakness to always look the same. So you only look for those signs. You miss the rest.
