You're Tough

Yeah, it hurts.
but you’re tough
you can take it
keep it coming
it’s never enough

You swallow
it trickles down…
enough so it chokes
but doesn’t drown
it grows
it roots

you’re tough
you can take it
you break hearts
bend nails
false starts
and empty pails

broken mirrors
and broken dreams
nothing’s ever
what it seems

    i love this part

    “You swallow

    pain that is swallowed, so it can be dealt with later or just hidden, does silently take on a life of its own…it does grow….so that line was a great one

    Thanks B&B… pain, guilt, emotions in general – we’re a society that bottles up and explodes.
