What is it?
Who defines strength?
Is it someone who still stands after their -
heart has been broken mulitple times?
Is it someone who refuses to give up their -
virginity even though their peers tell them to?
What about a man who can lift three hundred -
and fifty pounds?
Or maybe a single parent striving to take care -
of their child/children?

Why am I constantly the toy
of a man child's eye?
Then supposed men tell me,
I need someone like them?!
Something doesn't make sense...
Maybe it's me...

My heart aches
My chest is heavy
I can't sleep from visions of -
what could have been and what were -
play through my mind.
My eyes are dry from crying endlessly
My breathe is shuttered from the words -
I wish I could have said to you.

Gasping for air
Reaching for hands that are out of reach.
Tumbling in the tides of the island of undesirables.
I try to swim away from my fate.
Though, the hands of time are cruel to dreamers, and -
I'm dragged back into the surf.
Is anyone out there?
Anyone to hear my plea?
My will was strong, but like a rock, who's been beaten -
by the surf, I'm slowly crumbling.
