What do you think of my song 'family of hope'?

I wait and listen to her sleepless night sigh
Children hungry mouths, curled up on their side
Waiting patiently for all eyes to close
Because this is when father beats himself up the most
Stomach talks while dirt slithers his arm
Children sleep, a dream with no harm
The night to himself, he blinks strength away
Doubting himself, he's surprised he made the day
Because his heart breaks every single time
That his family smiles back, and yet does not whine
Cry father
Cry the family man
Chorus:
Is it true, that men do not cry?
What do you call me?
What do you call me?
(2x)
Another day has come, and the family is still whole
Myah and her smile, and her heart of gold
Stomach still empty, rags cling her hips
Daughter on tip toes, giving dad a kiss
Her weak legs tumble from weightless weight
Daddy went to fetch some water, but it was too late
A proper burial, shoveling with a rock
Daddy burried his daughter, hunger still mocks
His heart still breaks every single time
That his family smiles back, and yet does not whine
Cry father
Cry the family man
Chorus:
Is it true, that men do not cry?
What do you call me?
What do you call me?
(2x)
Dust crust his face, while looking at the grave
Maybe there's a world out there, that's the land of the brave
Looking at the sunset he knows it never ends
But tomorrow and the next day, he will try agian
Cry father
Cry the family man
Chorus:
Is it true, that men do not cry?
What do you call me?
What do you call me?
(2x)

Call me a true man (3x) (whisper)
