What is a Man?

Strength: in body and in spirit,
One who is not supposed to cry, they say
They seem to manage better in a cruel world;
…On the outside.

But on the inside, they feel
The same as me ~
They must weep, must love passionately;
Experience pain.

Fragility can lie within
Broad shoulders, muscular arms,
Strong legs and a back
That can carry anything

Yet…he possesses delicate features,
Holding indescribable beauty,
Containing great sensitivity,
And loving greatly

How can this dichotomy exist
Between strong and sensuous,
Rough and soft?
It is everything.
