I Am

I am weak but strong
I wonder if I can live on my own.
I hear my dad's voice guiding me.
I see the people who thought I was nothing.
I want to be successful.

I am weak and strong.
I pretend to smile through everything.
I feel the broken mirror slice my wrists again.
I touch my scars to remind me of my past.
I worry I will never stop.
I cry after I realize what I did.

I am weak but strong.
I understand the consequence of my decisions.
I say let's do it.
I dream about my future.
I try to not panic.
I hope my panic attacks stop.
I am weak but strong.
