Strong for too long

To be strong for so long,
It wears us down,
We wear a smile,
Not a frown.

To be strong for so long,
We fall to our knees,
In the dark all alone,
With no one to hear our tears.

To be strong for so long,
It’s a burden to hold,
To not say a word,
To keep the burden until we are old.

To be strong for so long,
We do not notice the strength had gone.

We rise from our fall,
We wipe away the tears,
We stand proud and tall,
We forget our past fears,
We move on
And continue to be strong.
