They say they love you,
They say they want to help you.
Then they hate you,
Then they abandon you.
Can I be brave,
Can I be strong in the face of uncertainty?
Will I make it,
Will I be okay in the end?
Beauty and strength are in the eye of the beholder,
To be what I need to be to survive.
Alone with thoughts of hopelessness,
Fear that overwhelms you to the brink.
You want to cry until you can't,
Only to find no time for letting go.
Alone with no one to support you,
You are abandoned but are you alone?
No, your thoughts and will to survive kicks in.
Somehow you will show them,
That you can kick me down,
But I will not be beaten.
