I'm Strong Enough

I’m strong enough to take your insults
I’m strong enough to take your pain
I’m strong enough to stem the tears
That threaten to soak my soul like rain

I’m strong enough to take your silence
I’m strong enough to take the neglect
I’m strong enough because I know
That you’re afraid to reconnect

I’m strong enough to take your madness
I’m strong enough to take your fear
I’m strong enough because I know
You can’t survive without me near

So go ahead! Unleash the fury!
Go ahead! Try to make me break!
I will withstand the awful onslaught
Because I know how much to take

I know inside you there is someone
Who’s been hurt right to the core
Someone who has been damaged
When he wanted to love some more

Someone whose soul is soft and tender
Someone who needs to heal in time
That’s why I can take your abuse
Because I know your heart is mine!

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    It is good to see beyond the pain and see the true heart of the one we love. Some people can't see beyond the hurt.

    Each of us has our own unique brand of strength. Some of the strongest people I know are also the most broken.

    Thank you, my dear Mystic Rose! I so appreciate your post! I've often been rejected because of the baggage I carry! It is human nature to want to protect ourselves from what we can't understand. I'm not always that strong...with that I were! My love to you....Hugs!
