The Irony of Being a Man

Fri, 06/10/2016 - 17:41 -- traclin

Six foot tall but I don't want to play football

Two hundred pounds of muscle but I can't make a friend

I'm bigger than most of them but I'm told I'm less manly

They don't talk to me but they talk about me

I'm think I'm strong but I feel weak

I'm told I can't wear that, I can't sit there, I can't say that

They say I'm a wimp, I'm a loser, I'm a nerd

Isn't it funny that the only way to grow some balls is to do what other people tell you to do

Isn't it strange that being a tough guy means not having the courage to say no

But I know better

I'm manly because I live everyday the way I want to live

I'm tough because I don't fight back

A man isn't what people tell you it is, it's what you think it is

and I think its me
