Only one way

Always had to be the strong one

Never allowed to show emotion

The few times I did the ridicule would start

Was always taught to be embarrassed

Always told that there’s no use for tears

Never had I considered the opposite

After a while those words became true

My walls grew stronger

I hid not behind others, but behind myself

That was not an easy feat

Had to find the warrior inside me

Well in the end she found me

After a year of war

She never left me

Always on the defensive

Had to learn to count to three

Now, she’s always lurking behind the shadows

Waiting, watching for the walls to fall

The ones that ridiculed before

Now, want to see me crumble

But they cannot have it both ways
