People will always expect you to take life as you plummet further and further into its chaotic flow
They expect you to take its punches
getting harder

They think you can stay strong
And you try
And you fool them
You stay standing even when you're about to
b r e a k
Responsibilities? you have plenty
You do them for your family
The ones you love
And for what?
What about you?
Do they value you as much as you value them?
Maybe, but do they know you?
About your demons
Your battles
The reasons you never cry in front of other people
No, and you don't tell them
They have their own problems
The ones you always try and fix
So you'll
And fight
And try
Try not to end everything
You'll keep going
That what they say about that which does not kill you
Can only make you STRONGER

I loved how you incorporated your own life and struggles into your writing. It makes your writing sound more meaningful and has more emotion. Keep up the work
