#Change #starts with #I & #We

In a world where

boys are told

not to cry,

I tell mine that

I hear him.

I hear him and

I am here for him.

That he is smart,

intelligent, kind.

That he is

not to be bound

by gendered norms

but simply be

a good human.

For he’s a gift

like our neighbour’s

little girl-child.

We hear them.

We hear them and

we are here

for them.

  1. So true! Love that you support your man and that you tell the world, that they can show weakness too ❤️‍🩹
    It’s about time that we talk about that! Love your post!!
