Numb

Hard as a rock; 
Strong as a tree.
Hurt again and again,
But you're not breaking me.
A cut is just a flesh wound...
An insult just a name.
Won't let them get to me,
Push forward in strain.

Do your worst!
I can take the beating.
Put me in my place.
I can take the bleeding.
I'll take it all.
Without any breaking.
Do your best!
Take what your taking.

When I'm alone,
and your gone.
Tears will flow.
But you'll think i'm strong.
I'll finally let go.
Fall apart bit by bit.
On the brink of insanity.
I'll regain my grip.

I lay alone bleeding.
My body broken and battered;
although the will is strong.
It doesn't matter.
The body is unable and
everything is wrong.
When you look in my eyes...
you'll think i'm strong

    many of your works seem to be based on strength this is a good message to young woman too saty strong in times of trouble.

    I can really relate to this write. Was taught never to show emotions or the punishment would be more severe. Kind of an oxymoron if you ask me. This was an excellent and well written work.
