Everyone says they are strong,
Or think they can endure,
Till they are faced with real life situations,
and then they get all weak and weary.
Strength is not just about the physical,
It’s about holding up the mental,
It’s about believing in the spiritual,
And being the powerful emotional.
Strength is being able to cry infront of others,
And not being scared they’ll mock you.
It’s being vulnerable,
Yet brave enough to let that show.
It’s being authentic,
And not being scared of being judged.
It’s being completely broken down by life,
Yet being able to put on a smile.
Strength is having ur heart ripped into pieces,
And still considering love is a beautiful thing.
It’s waking up to bills, insurances, no money
And being able to strive even harder.
It’s seeing everything going amiss,
Yet hoping the future is bright.
Strength is my state of mind,
