I want to kill someone

Have you told them that you have emotions too,
Have you told them that that you need to cry too,
Have you told them under the suit there is a human,
Have you told them that you can also be heartbroken.

Don’t be weak they taught me,
A man doesn’t cry they instilled in me,
A man takes care of the family,
A man doesn’t get pushed around by a woman,

Fuck!! Hold up i am a man not a machine,
Being a man doesn’t mean i am unbreakable,
I am human after all,
Who can be hurt, who can fail,
I am not immune to emotions,
Give me space to express my weakness,
Don’t you dare ask me to suppress my humanity,
I will cry when i feel like it,
I will show emotions when i want,
Who are you to determine how i feel.

I want to kill someone,
Yes i want to kill the old me,
And let the new me out,
It’s high time i lead the life i want,
Not the one that you decide for me,
Damn !!! I am a man not a machine.
