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.
