Today I saw the grass shake.
It was cold outside.
But so was I.
I was only shaking on the inside though.
I kept a cold exterior
That’s what made me strong...
But on the inside, I was breaking,
…faking my strength,
faking my courage, and confidence...
People would see me like the air against the grass,
So strong that I can move everyone around me
..But inside...I was the grass.
I couldn’t stand tall for too long
But no one would ever see me break
.. Because I was cold
…too cold for someone to love me
…too confident to listen to anyone else
…too strong to let anyone tell me “no”
I never fell for anyone...
Or, at least...
No one has been there to know
Because I only shake on the inside
Maybe it’s time to grow...
