Lesson #1


United States
34° 4' 15.1572" N, 117° 9' 21.1932" W

I was always taught never seem weak
Always act strong

To always fake that smile
And laugh like nothings wrong

But right now I think about those hard times I got through

Was it really all me?...
Or my desire to please you?...

From my past to my present
I can't help now but to think...

Maybe I was always strong....

Maybe I was always weak....
