Strong And Silent

Be strong, don't be silent,

They're not the same thing,

It takes true courage to honestly speak,

The silent hide,

They're thoughts inside,

For fear of appearing weak.


So be strong, don't be silent,

Bare your soul,

Bring your fears out into the light,

Let your bravery see them,

Master them, free them,

Don't fight them alone in the night.


Be strong, don't be silent,

They're not the same thing,

Each of us has our own demons to fight,

But when we confide,

And stand side by side,

Together we fight in the light.

This really hit me hard in a way hard to describe. So often our perceptions are twisted by what we think others will think. In such ways we are bound to an image we created for ourselves. Thank you for this.

Thank you for this lovely read! Speaking my truth and staying silent is something I have always struggled with. I not only was able to relate to this poem but felt uplifted after reading!
