What Is Strength?

When you’re in a hospital and all the nurses call you so strong.

When they tell you they have seen others give up so much sooner.

That I am so strong for continuing my journey.

They don’t see the broken heart behind the warm blankets.

The scars and bruises.

The tears that fall when they come and go from the empty room.

Because I am alone

And I am not strong

I am just tired and hungry

And would give the world to keep a meal down

For the bags under my eyes to go away.

I would give the world to be a normal 24 year old girl.
