The Strong One


i've always been

the strong one

my whole life

i must've been

‘cause people said so

a thousand times

i thought it was

a compliment

it felt like praise

until one day and

after many years

its own true nature

was finally revealed

as being all but

favorable to me

not meant to motivate

designed to bind just

as a verdict would

once pronounced strong

it is forever so and

room for weakness

there is none

so when it's time

and all that strength

is growing dim

beware i warn you

don't let it tell

'cause no one

can imagine

such a thing

and no one

gives a damn

NOISE:

people play

musical chairs

to the sound

of the wind


they all chant


@ each other

simultaneously

"please be

mindful of

the energy

that you

bring

into

my space"

PS:

food 4 thought

4 dinner

KNOCKING AT THE DOOR OF CHANGING ONE'S LIFE IS, INDEED, A HARD THING TO DEAL WITH, WHEN U'RE HELD BACK BY REMAINING WHO U HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WHILE DOING WHAT U HAVE ALWAYS DONE.
