Strength?

Sometimes I need to cry,
Sometimes the tears don't stop.
So I call on God for forgiveness
And to help me hide my feelings.

To God, I ask
For a simple hardened mask
To help me hide
That which I feel inside

Then as I dry my eyes
And wipe my tears
And attempt to conceal my fears
I begin to realise..

That in our lives,
At different points we begin to see
And experience reality
And challenges and burdens.

This makes it easier for us to hide behind
And makes us stronger.
And all the more prepared.
