Won't Breakdown

She is so strong
Not afraid to admit
When she does wrong
She will not throw a fit

She is tough 
But oh so sweet
Happiness she will bluff
But never will she admit defeat

She stands so tall
You won't see her fall

She won't let you see her tears
She has up a guard
She won't show her fears

Even when she can't take anymore
She will stand above that floor

She can find the light
In the sadness of the day
She own't give into the night
She ignores the gray

She stands above the rest
She won't frown
She is blessed
She won't breakdown
