He has dreams
He has a future
He loves and desires to be loved
He feels pain when it hurts
He knows the power of touch
He trust whole heartedly
He desires to succeed
And when he fails
He keeps trying
He fears sometimes
He desires to know
What the future holds
Sometimes he cries
Sometimes he laughs
And those he loves
He holds dear
To his heart
Before you question
His masculinity
Remember he’s not
Made of stone
Yes he is a man
But remember
He’s human like
You and I
