How will they know?

How does it feel,

When they tell you ‘you’re too meek,

Too shy or too weak’ ?

Do they know you’re made of steel ?

How much do they know of the stories

Beneath your scars,

Or the sleepless nights

Trying to break the bars?

So don’t be their version of PERFECT,

Be your own one,
