She is strong

She is perfect
They thought
She was the Strong One

Her wall had cracks
Her heart had holes
She is strong
Nothing is wrong
She has a family
She is loved
The Happy One they thought

She hurt inside
And couldn’t show it
She was hidden
By smiles
The Strong One
Was hidding, was weak

The author's comments:

I feel this piece is really relatable. Most of us are hiding under some sort of facade. And this poem expresses that.
