Yes I’m strong

Yes I’m strong

That doesn’t mean I don’t hurt

I ignore all the insults you hurl at me

I brush off all the curses you spurt.

Yes I’m strong

That doesn’t mean I don’t shed a tear

I cry silently into my pillow at night

I walk around in a cloud of fear.

Yes I’m strong

That doesn’t mean my heart can’t ache

I love you so much but you don’t realise

Instead you keep pushing until I break.

Yes I’m strong

That doesn’t mean I don’t bruise

Turning purple from the punches you throw

Trying my hardest not to ignite your fuse.
