I'm getting stronger, somehow. I'm rising above others, someway.

Stronger

Taking a look around

I see that I'm not on the ground

When I feel like I might break

I remember there's nothing in the way

So when you come around

I'll show you what I've found

I'm better than when you were

forcing me to get off my knees

I realize there's more to life

than stopping after each mistake

I'm getting stronger

without all the anger

I'm getting stronger

without all the terror

I'm getting stronger

without the pressure

of you on my shoulders

The time is what I needed

I won't be defeated

Closer to the reasons

of why I wasn't so serious

I remind myself that

you won't tear me down

I'm getting stronger

without all the anger

I'm getting stronger

without all the terror

I'm getting stronger

without all the pressure

of you on my shoulders

I have yet to find anything of yours I do not like. You are strong, just saying. You are also an incredibly talented read. I see you are an emotional writer. I am sure the release is always a gentle lift of the weight of the world you feel. I can feel the strength of your emotions in your writing. ...and again...I insist! Do not thank me! I thank you for giving me inspiring entertainment on a Sunday afternoon. :)
