I don't want to be strong

I want the world to be nice to me.

Why does everybody tell me I'm strong like it's some kind of consolation?

How if it was worth it, the pain?

I don't want to die for this.

the world only knows how to break me

to say make me stronger.

because we all want to achieve strength

like it's not going numb?

become the pain instead of enduring it.

I'm growing in pain, but you call it strength.

you say I'm strong, that I can do it.

but i just want the world to be nice to me

even if it makes me weak.

    I like you capture the calling out of the human spirit. It is great. You describe the human quest for joy perfectly.

    It’s a world worth working for, where a woman can be both soft and unafraid.
