Tired of being strong

In one of my weak times…

Sometimes I want to cry,
but I can’t.
I get tired of being strong.
I’m supposed to be able to stand on my own
To not need anyone.
But I do.
Most of the time I can make it just fine
Self-sufficient and all.
But I get tired of being strong.
I want to just fall apart in someone’s arms.
To just be able to be weak,
and to have someone to protect me
from the world.
I don’t ever know why I feel like crying at these times
It might be exhaustion from being strong for so long
But the tears never come,
because there are no safe, strong arms
to release them.
They tell me I’m not supposed to need a man.
That I can just be myself and be independent.
But I get tired of being strong.
