Yes, I'm Strong

Image Source

It hasn't been a very good year
I've tried so much to remain strong
Every path I tread carefully
Yet every right turned wrong

I was pushed to the ground
A load of weight put on my back
As I tried to make sense of the hues
Every color soon turned to black

I crawled my way up and about
Wounded and bleeding through the way
I was tired but I didn't stop
Pushing myself up night and day

Nothing is easy when you are down
The true colors of people you see
Friends quickly turn to strangers
When I wanted help, only I was with me

I did not want to die down there
I was determined to see the light
With each step forward I came back twice
Still, I wasn't doing down without a fight

Emotions drained me out completely
I could only feel a void within me
Giving up was never an option
Finally, a ray of light I could see

I went to hell and came back
Dealing with blow after blow
I did not suppress my emotions
When the tears came, I let it flow

Yes, I am a valiant woman
But I'm only human after all
No matter how many days I spend on the top
One day everybody is bound to fall

Bottling up the pain does not help
Uncork it and pour it out
The anger inside will only pierce you
Spew out the venom, go ahead and shout

After this you'll find yourself again
Now it's all right, nothing wrong
When you're feeling down, chant this
I'm strong, oh yes, I'm strong
