Strong no more..

You are strong, is all you’ve heard

So strong is the only way to be

In moments of weakness, you put on a facade

Of strength, each time invariably..

That does help carry you through

Many crises, real and perceived

But it turns exhausting too

“You can handle anything” is generally believed

This illusion of strength has a consequence odd

Portraying strength can isolating be

You don’t need support or assistance

This is a belief held wildly..


What a pleasure it would be to open up

And display your vulnerable side

To cry, to commiserate, to voice your fears

For once, let your emotions decide

Which way to go, which path to take

Give yourself permission to express

All your dreams and fears bottled up

All perceived weaknesses that you had suppressed…


Strength to me lies in embracing

Our vulnerability, our human aspect

Some battles are won by the body and the brain, some by heart

All emotions that we feel, we should respect
