Am I Strong?

Am I strong if I remember

every word he spoke

 

Am I weak if I forget

like it was a cruel joke

 

Am I strong if I remember

every detail seen

 

Am I weak if I pretend

it was a short, dark dream

 

Am I strong if I lived through

to tell the messy tale

 

Am I weak if I don’t try

to speak up, and just fail

 

Am I strong if I stand up

and tell everybody so

 

Am I weak if I sit down

and say that I don’t know

 

I must be strong because I lived

and not a tear slipped from my eye

 

I must be weak because I lived

on, wanting to die

 

Whether I am strong or weak

I will never know

 

All that’s clear is I’m a freak

for being bothered by it so
