I let a few tears escape.

It's so dark that they wont be seen.

But only a few,

because I might be on screen.

I have to hide my fear;

Bury it deep.

I cannot scream.

I will not weep.

I must stay strong,

or else I will fail.

I have covered my anger,

under a veil.

They will not see me scream in the night.

I will not show them that I am scared.

I have to show them,

I will not be spared.

I can run and hide.

I can hunt and find.

Don't count me out,

I can use my mind.

So even if I am terribly afraid.

Even if I feel betrayed.

I will stay strong and show my might.

I will not go down without a fight.
