Someone once told me 

A man doesn't cry

He also isn't weak

Alright, ok

So, I should become a machine incapable of emotion then?

What's so wrong with crying every now and often?

Maybe I lost a Uncle who was like a Father to me

Or a friend of mine tried to commit suicide?

That someone who told me is wrong 

A man has to go through weakness to become strong
