I'm strong

I'm strong 

I'm a woman that can handle everything even though I've been through a lot in my life I know that showing weakness is not me 

I'm stronger than that and I'm going to show my kids it's good to be strong 

I'm strong

I'm a fighter

I'm smart

I'm brave

I'm scared that I'm going to break down in front of my kids and cry

I have scars that show that I been abused  

but I don't let that hold me back 

I'm scared  that my kids are going to see me cry and I don't want to show them that mommy is weak but sometimes  it's ok to cry 

you don't have to be strong all the time

I'm scared that my abuser is going to come back 

I'm scared that I'm going to have a flash back in front of my kids  

I know that my kids will be there for me no matter what mommy has been through my kids will always love me 

I know I'm loved 

I know I'm happy 

I know I'm a good mom 

I know I'm a good wife 

I know I'm strong 

I know It's ok to cry 

I know It's ok to be scared 

I know It's ok to show weakness sometime 

I know It's ok to break down 

because you know your kids and your husband will always be right there by your side 

to help you through it all.

    You are definitely strong. You have the courage to face what you fear, that what really strong is. A brave fighter.

    Your poem took back to when I was 26 and pregnant if my first son living in Australia without family and my boyfriend was week and could not support me. I had to be very strong to keep my baby. But everything turned ok and my son is now 32 and has a daughter at age 3. I'm so happy to have them. Be strong because we can be strong when we need but it is no problem to cry in front of your kids. They are going to see you as human. Wishing you luck with your family.

    Good for you - an enjoyable read - cry when you need to - I do and I'm a man.
