Shes strong but shes tired

Shes strong but shes tired
Her eyes are wired
Shes been fighting
Non stop
An invisible enemy
The world thinks shes gone mad
That shes weak and lazy
But they’re the ones that are crazy
They couldn’t imagine the battles she faced
They couldn’t fight the battles shes had to face
If they were in her place
They wouldn’t be able to cope
They would give up hope
But she said nope not me
I’m going to keep fighting till I’m free
Shes strong
But shes tired
This battle has gone on far too long
But only because she is strong
Shes stronger than we’ll ever know
Shes gone places we’ll never go
So instead of calling her lazy or weak
I dare you to even look at her shoes
Because you probably couldn’t walk a mile in them let alone wear them for a week
We’re not strong
Not like her, not for this long.

Lonelyer than space

They say in space nobody can hear you scream
But that’s true on Earth too
Because we scream inwards
Whilst outwards we project a smile
Which we keep up for a while
But as soon as were alone
We scream and shout
But away from the window because we don’t want anybody to know
So we never show, how we truly feel on our face
Sometimes earth can be as lonely as space.

Metamorphosis

So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly
You feel stuck on the ground like your trapped in an impound
So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly

Yeah life isn’t always pretty
Sometimes we’ve got to get gritty
It feels like we’re not getting very far
Where are these wings, why can’t I sing
Damn I wish life would bring me some fortune

Don’t worry though, there is no hurry
Embrace the grind, you never know what you may find,
Don’t let social media blind you,
You are beautiful don’t you know

This process you are going through is amazing,
One day your looks will be blazing
Just call this phase the grazing days,
Relax and let the process begin
And remember beauty comes first from within

This is metamorphosis you are butterfly,
One day you will fly, sky high,
But stand by, I don’t want to petrify you
But metamorphosis is what you have to go through,
You see a caterpillar doesn’t get to sit in a villa, it has to work to gather strength from within, It doesn’t seem to travel very far to begin with,

Then it becomes the pupa, stuck in one spot, where on the outside it looks like there is not a lot going on but underneath the shield, its beauty is being wielded,

Transformation happens when no one else can see, not even you, but do you know what happens if you get through…
Well your gonna experience life from a whole nother view

So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly
You feel stuck on the ground like your trapped in an impound
So your sad but why, coz you can’t fly

Don’t you know that you’re a butterfly
