POEM| I am Strong

I am strong
but staying strong is tough
saying I am fine is tough
carrying around the weight is tough
praying not to explode is tough
doing everything myself is tough

Am I strong?
I’m not sure
though struggling is tough
persevering is tough
adulting is tough
and admitting I’m not is tough

I am strong
I am tough
I have to be strong
though staying strong is tough
I have to be strong
because being tough is strong
