guys

guys

guys have the right to speak their voice
loud into a trembling night

to other people, or to themselves in the mirror
small as an ant or big as a giant

only one bright star
or strong as many boulders

I'm damaged they yell to the world
damaged but not broken

in perfect English or in any language
or even soundless

guys wish to make the galaxy wholesome
they start with themselves

and cause a chain reaction
so speak up, speak up and share

no one can silence guys
don’t even bother to try
 
Thank you Darren! That certainly sounds like the guys here a MS!
“only one bright star
or strong as many boulders” I love this!
We are damaged but we have much strength!

In a world where guys are currently being told to “shut up” and “quit mansplaining” this poem rings out even more true. Yes. Making the galaxy wholesome, we start with ourselves. Love it Darren!

Exactly :)
We start with ourselves, and we also break the silence.

There are so many ways we can use our voices. Even silence can be powerful when it is our choice. Thanks for an uplifting poem.
