Always expected to be strong.

Never allowed to shed a tear.

My pain and sorrow, I must not share.

I must endure it all silently within.

A mask placed on me long ago. 

Expected to play my part so well.

No longer knowing where I begin and end.

The needs of others before mine.

Sacrificing everything for those I love.

They mean the world to me.

I cannot let them down.

I must be strong for them.

How can I bear my cross in silence?!

If only I had found the “one”.

I could have shared what is within.

Solace and comfort enveloped in the “one”.

I thought, I finally had found the “one”.

However, it wasn’t meant to be. 

In my travels the “one” could not be found.

I am so fragile but must be strong.
