I want to be strong

Iím not a person who wants to lift a lot of weights
Iím a person who cares about the thoughts of others
Of friends, family, strangers
And classmates

Iím not a person who wants to diet and become anorexic skinny
But I am a person who wants guys to check me out
But is there beauty
In a stomach hanging over?
Is there coolness and popularity
In having a model figure?

I am being myself
But is that enough?
I want to not care; I want to be tough
I want to be able to sit at a lunch table
And not give a crap if people sit by me or not
And even though this is not the case
I donít want to have to depend on anyone
To have to chase
My friends down if I have a problem
I donít want to run
I want to face them head on, by myself


What if someoneís not there when I need them?
What if Iím on the brink of destruction?
Again
And nobodyís there
What if itís too much to bear....

I want to be happy with myself
I want to be a person who has confidence in herself
Even when Iím wrong
I still want to be able to say
Itís okay
I still love you
To be able to truly believe that
To say that to myself and believe it with all my heart
Would be a tremendous breakthrough

I want to be protected
From all the hurt in this world
I want to be my own reward
I want to belong
I donít want to be ignored
I want to be strong

nice one...and those really are some strong words...but i mean that i liked them
to express such strong feelings isn't an easy task...and to make somone understand what you mean is a greater one...
and the poem is like a mirror to my feelings too...
wish it were that way...
life wouldn't be this hard!
i want to be be strong too!!

I too want to be strong... Powerful words you have written. Beautiful.

"But is there beauty
In a stomach hanging over?
Is there coolness and popularity
In having a model figure?"

I loved that stanza by the way.

Awww thanks! the first part kinda descirbed me a lil bit, i mean, i'm not fat or nothin, but i'm not skinny either... so i tried to reflect that on what the rest of the world seems to think is "pretty"
and priyanka, i'm glad that you seem to understand how i feel, and i was even more flattered and touched when you said that it's not easy to make someone understand....
i don't want to care what people think, that's basically what i'm sayin
