Be who you are. Don't be anything less.
Strength isn't just measured by how much pain you can take.

Rain falls from her eyes
As the storm crumbles her life
Subsiding only when it’s destroyed
And she has no hope left inside
There’s an empty place in her heart
Where her confidence should be
It takes a million to build it up
But only one to send it crumbling down
Swimming through her tears
She finds a place no one knows
A place where she doesn’t have to hide
And pretend that everything is all right
She cries until the rains stop
And the storm passes
She faces another day
Knowing that she is stronger
Because she knows deep down
That it’s better than drowning in her tears
