The price of strengh
I stopped counting how many times
I've been told how strong I am

I always have that bitter smile on my face
When I hear those words

Because I'm still standing
Doesn't mean I didn't fall
Doesn't mean it didn't hurt
Doesn't mean I didn't break
Into million pieces I glued back together
One piece at the time

Being told how strong I am
Reminds me how broken I am
How much pain I've been through

Hearing that I'm strong
Scares me to the bones
Because my bones knows
I'll fall again
And break again

But it's ok
"I'm strong" I say as I smile
