I thought I was strong


I am strong
For others, and not for myself
Not wanting to be a burden

I am strong
Showing no fear
Yet inside, I'm curled up underneith my blanket
Like a child afraid of monster under her bed 

I am strong 
Putting a smile on 
While inside, I'm breaking down 
Drowning in a puddle of tears

I am strong 
Showing as if I doesn't fase me 
When people rip on me and tease me 
Inside, it hurt more than anyone will ever know 

I wasn't strong
I thought I was strong 
Because no on knew,
They never knew,
How much it killed me.
