The Bro’s Don’t Know

Location

The bro’s don’t know.

That what is within the man is not without.

That the truth of oneself does not play out.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That the late night parties do not fulfill.

That the incessant posturing does indeed kill.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That meaningful conversation is what’s at stake.

That masculinity does not mean fake.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That I am looking for more.

That the genius within is on tour.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That the deep feelings remain worn.

That the bottling up is brewing a storm.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That who I am is a smart and caring human being.

That I believe there is more to life than fleeing.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That the societal pressures make us who we are.

That the desire to fit in kills our greatest bizarre.

 

The bro’s don’t know.

That it’s time to change the game.

That the life that has been lived, will never be the same.
