Day 289 – Being Strong

I’m so good on that “being strong” shit–
don’t you know that’s all
I know how to do?
I carry a load on my back
that a man can never understand
and when the walls come down
and I crumble, it’s from exhaustion
from being strong for too long
and not asking for help ‘cuz I won’t,
and not feeling remorse ‘cuz I don’t,
but just pretending I’m brave when really
I’m far too scared
to let them see me cry
and they never will
