stand strong



You asked why I always run

Always keeping everyone at bay

Letting them love me so long

Then hollering “Whoa” and “Nay”


Do you not understand how I left

Pieces of myself everywhere I’ve been?

Every time I have ever dove feet first

I found pools of broken glass, so I swim


Can’t you see just by looking at me

I’ve been dependant for so long

I don’t know anything anymore

Just that I need to stand strong


I don’t know what the future holds

I have no clue where I’m going

Or any real idea what I’m doing

I just have this deep knowing


I just have to keep moving forward

Keep trying to make myself better

Hold true to my core self

And believe everything will be okay

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This one was a conversation I had with someone explaining why I was the way I was.

A friend

Tough as iron and hard as steel
yet she knows how to feel
her tears burn like acid upon my mind
She is far too fragile, far too kind
Why does she listen to the gossip and lies
Thier pointing fingers and accusatory cries.

Written about a friend who went through tonnes and smiled, and after 1 week with her boyfriend shes crying and depressed.
