I was told I was strong
Strong enough to break bricks
And then I broke my body breaking that last brick
I was told I could climb higher then the clouds
And then I fell and crashed, crashed hard
I was told I could out run lions
And then one day I couldn’t run any longer
I was told I was unbreakable, I was told I was powerful, they told me I could do anything
I told them I was weak, weak enough to scar every limb on my body
I told them I was powerless, enough to surrender to life itself
I told them I was too tired, tired enough to drop to my knees without a thought to get back up
