Don't fret little boy

Dont fret little boy
for your tears might sting a bit
But pain is short-lived

dont fret little boy
For you will grow tall and strong
That is a promise

Dont fret little boy
For you will learn how to fight
And you’ll never Lose

Dont fret little boy
For you will become a man
A woman, your pawn

Don’t fret little boy
For you will dominate all
And won’t take a “no”

Soon the time will come
when your budding flower dies
And your thorns come out.

This is a really really rough draft so please let me know what you think I should change or what you like about it! Let me know if it is confusing as well. My goal for this was for the poem to be about how societal standards for men are so toxic causing them to have a certain ego and belief that they have to grow up to be strong, have no emotions, and be better than women (able to use them however they want). I hope you like it!!
