"I don't think that being a strong person is about ignoring your emotions and fighting your feelings. Putting on a brave face doesn't mean you're a brave person. That's why everybody in my life knows everything that I'm going through. I can't hide anything from them. People need to realise that being open isn't the same as being weak."

Abraham's Daughter

He wrote in his schoolbooks
With his sister's blood
Under his eyes
Were the bruises of Abraham's daughter

And the money his parents spent
Were made of childhood play
And broken dreams

The clothes on his back
Were ripped off hers
He built a house
On a river of tears
And a shredded wedding dress

Abraham's daughter
Raised for the slaughter
A rich man with another's wife
Lives in her charity

And forfeits his life

Abraham's daughter
Raised for the slaughter
Buried him with his father's innocence
And her own blood.
