I was strong when I was questioned about my gender.
I was strong when people made fun of the way I looked.
I was strong when my "friends" turned the class on me.
I was strong when I had no one to turn to...to call friend
I was weak when I changed my appearance.
I was weak when I tried to fit in.
I was weak when I became popular.
I was weak when I made fun of the "lames" in school.
I was weak when I was on top of the world.
I was weak when I drunk that drink that altered my senses.
I was weak when I let my boyfriend be my savior.
I was nothing when I had no real friends.
I was nothing when I cried myself to sleep.
I was nothing when I tried to runaway.
I was nothing when my savior left.
I was nothing when I cut myself to be happy...
I was strong when I figured out I never had to change. I just needed to love myself...
