Anything But Weak

Anything But Weak

I barely know the word
It’s so foreign, so unheard
I’ve never faced it, you see
I ran, never looking back
When it tried to come up to me

I’m trying to tell you, you see
I can never ever be weak
I’ve trek the blizzard, the coldest storms
Scaled the icy mountains
Where no one dared to explore
And I triumphed, I survived
That’s evidence to see as today I’m alive
So don’t ever think of calling me
Or seeing me…
See me as anything but weak

I barely recognize the name
It’s such a mystery
It has no meaning to me
I’ve always turned away
When it tried to come my way

I’m trying to tell you, you see
I can never ever be weak
I’ve trek the blizzard, the coldest storms
Scaled the icy mountains
Where no one dared to explore
And I triumphed, I survived
That’s evidence to see as today I’m alive
So don’t ever think of calling me
Or seeing me…
See me as anything but weak

I travelled to frightening, unknown towns
Where no one could not be seen
Where no one was around
I wandered till I found a way home
And yes, I did it all, all alone

I’m trying to tell you, you see
I can never ever be weak
I’ve trek the blizzard, the coldest storms
Scaled the icy mountains
Where no one dared to explore
And I triumphed, I survived
That’s evidence to see as today I’m alive
So don’t ever think of calling me
Seeing me…
See me as anything but weak

    1. Sorry for the delay, but what I meant with this statement was unknown environments–places (i.e. buildings, neighborhoods and cities), and even unfamiliar pursuits and activities, where I did not belong or did not know how I would get out of without encountering something dangerous or challenging. And what made it more frightening was I had to go and be in those places alone–I had no one to turn to. Thanks for asking 🙂
