Strong Enough @ann177345

Nobody seemed to notice, but I guess deep down I knew,


I really needed someone there to help me make it through.



I suppose that comes from years of trying to be strong,


And learning that the illusion could only last so long.



For years I have been the one to try and keep the peace,


The one to try and calm the storm amidst the raging sea.



In arguments, I would always be the one to never take a side,


Instead, I stopped to listen and tried to turn the tide.



The times that others struggled, I did what I could do,


To offer some encouragement, to help them make it through.



Whenever things around me started to go wrong,


I have always been the one determined to be strong.



The many times when others seemed to buckle under pressure,


I always tried to be the one to hold it all together.



Bravery in times of trial and strength amidst the storms,


Are noble feats I tried desperately to make the norm.



Until the day came when my heart couldn’t make it through,


It was then I learned it can not always just be you.



After years of fighting to be what I thought everyone would need,


I have come to quickly realize that alone, I can not succeed.



In my solitude, I will never be strong enough to bear,


All the burdens and the sorrows that people often share.
