You are so brave
Every time you get up in the morning
With the ache behind your eyes
And that worthless numbness feeling
As you open the blinds

You are very strong
For the pounding in your mind
That you listened to alone
And the words that would not leave you
When you thought that they were true

You are beautiful
For the moments you felt ugly
And the longing deep for love
That hurt with loneliness
Even if no one else knows

You are courageous
In flickers of weakness
And darkness that seems deeper
Than a sunrise
For you are unshakably you

You are so brave
If only you knew
