The middle son Eighteen years old Left for the unknown The mother cried And the brothers wept No one asked the father If his heart broke The last daughter A young bride Left her home The mother smiled The brothers danced No one asked the father If his heart broke The youngest son An angry man He cursed and yelled The mother feared The brothers raged No one asked the father If his hear broke The eldest son A weakling but cunning Abandoned them The mother wrote The brothers called No one asked the father If his heart broke
“His Heart Broke” was the first poem written by one of my closest friends. It’s very personal and touching and I felt like I needed to share it with all of you! “His Heart Broke” is about a family where the father’s opinion is ignored because he is a man and stereotypically they aren’t supposed to show emotions but all humans have emotions and we need to change that mentality that men are supposed to be tough and emotionless. All families have their disputes and sometimes these problems can tear a family apart. This poem reminds us that family is important and it’s important to treat the ones you love well because they are not always going to be around.
This poem also reminds us that toxic masculinity is alive and well. Due to the issues it creates in a patriarchal society, mens emotions are often ignored or subdued.
