Strong men and flowers

Strong men deserve flowers too,
To lighten up their day
They too need to smell the scents of lilies and roses
To colour their world

Strong men need to cry too
Allowing feelings to reign free
Allowing themselves to feel and be without burden.
To release the unsaid poems
Even when they say they do not like poetry.

Today, I left a red rose
At a man’s doorstep
The note said
“This is for you, you deserve to see colour”

His smile relaxed his shoulders
From attention to at ease
Humanity requires its beings
In their natural state
