you never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have

I’ve known pain all my life
Experienced it too much
To feel the rawness of the cut

My emotions are spent
My tear ducts gone dry

My heart has bleed so much
Drained too many times
To refill itself

I’m running on empty
With nothing left to say

I stab my heart in vain
For there’s nothing left to stab

My heart resembles an empty eggshell
Life has sifted thru the hole

Nothings there,
Doesn’t mean it isn’t still fragile
One more crack
Then I’ll truly be nothing
But air
