It's okay to break down
If I cry does it make me weak?
Am I not allowed to weep?
And if I don't, am I strong?
Even if all the things go wrong.
Smile through it all.
I'm telling myself its okay to cry.
I'm telling you its okay to break down.
It's okay not to feel okay.
I'm telling myself and every one else
You're strong, but right now just allow yourself
to fall on your knees and stop holding back the tears.
You're gonna be alright.
If it's over, stand up and move forward.
You don't need someone to tell you you're good enough,
you're beautiful or everything's gonna be okay
because deep down, it's all inside you.
You just don't know it.
Give it a try and look deep inside,
a priceless treasure is buried,
waiting to be found and shown to the world.
An image of a strong person is what the world needs to see.
