Being strong

Itajah B

January 4th, 2018

being strong to me is fighting an uphill

battle.

expressing yourself despite comments and pushback from people

you become afraid to express yourself,

and keeping faith

through times when you stand alone, when no one wants to give you a hand to hold

when there's no one to keep you from falling, but yourself

when you feel like no one is on your side.

Being strong is saying

“I can and I will”

versus “I can't and I won't”.

Being strong is

knowing life has its ups and downs and

knowing scars are there to

to symbolize strength not weakness,

To show

You

And the others who feel hopeless--

that you made it through the fight, The fight of life
