We hear and see cliché images all the time
of woman always controlled by the male
father in chilhood, husband after marriage
and sons in old age....
No one bothers, cares or believes
of the boy being controlled by women
from boyhood through manhood
by grandmom, mom and wife
and daughters in later life...
Yet they also form part of population
they can't even show their true selves
their true feelings or plight
for fear of being ridiculed "Sissy"
after all, boys don't cry!
