How Strong is Strong Enough?

By Fitvsfiction @fit_vs_fiction

Nobody asked me if it was okay

Before they took my big brother away

Nobody asked me if I’d be alright

Without any parents to kiss me goodnight

I’m angry as Hell that I’m left here alone

But where will it get me to bitch and to moan?

Will God bring them back if I say pretty please?

Beg for his mercy from down on my knees?

Nobody promised that life would be fair

But how many losses can one person bear?

What will it take to prove that I’m tough

And all that I’ve been through is more than enough?

I lay in a hospital

Unable to speak

Machines did my breathing

My body so weak.

I fought hard for my baby

Prayed he’d hold on

But my body betrayed me

My child was gone.

No chance to hold him

How soft he’d have been

I touched his ashes

But never his skin.

I’ve gotten quite good at hiding my pain

But sometimes I feel like I’m going insane

The strong fearless woman that others still see

Is slowly becoming a stranger to me.
