Strength Revised

*Beast Boy's POV to what Raven says in "Strength"


I watch you fight and struggle,

Trying to overcome




And every emotion you possess.

In your fight you raise a wall,

Blocking off your heart

From all the sadness in the world,

From all the joy in the world.

I know you need to keep a distance

From everything that you see.

You just want to keep us safe,

And for that I truly mourn.

I want to see you smile.

I want to hear you laugh.

Though born into a life of sorrow,

I believe you should know happiness.

I don't want to change you.

I just hate to see you, watch you,

And know you feel so low,

Trying to be strong,

Standing all alone -

Because you are the strongest person I know.
