secretly

-

perhaps—

the strongest people

are secretly the

weakest

-

you were strong

once;

you previously held

confidence;

-

but that changed

or perhaps—

it was just unmasked

as your façade slipped

-

you hurt and you fear

losing your faith;

shattering;

falling;

-

fragility is a weakness

time is your foe—

doubt serves as a plague

and trust is difficult

-

you fear this pain

but what you fear more;

is not feeling the hurt

for you no longer feel

-

but i—

i hope the ache stops

not because

you are hollow or vacant

-

but because;

you will no longer

have a reason

to keep hurting

-

but perhaps—

the strongest people

are secretly the

weakest
