When will you learn to say no?
When will you learn to make the people stop using you?
When will you stand up for yourself and be bold?
The truth is, people expect so much from you,
They expect you to deliver on all their expectations.
Many times you feel lost deep within
But they admire your might and warmth.
They admire that you inspire.
But how about you, superwoman?
Who inspires you?
Who holds up your head and wipes off your tears when you go back to your closet
To wail out your sorrows?
You give comfort to all who come your way
But who gives you comfort when your own heart is bleeding?
No one feels your pain.
You rarely show it even,
Only your fellow superwomen understand your pain.
I salute you, superwoman.
I salute you for your silent strength and warmth,
I salute you.
