"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."

Grandmother, forgive me
Careless child am I
To keep you waiting.

Grandmother, tell me a story
Something you have watched, silently
As you cradled the home of my forefathers

Grandmother, how do you stand unconquered?
A thousand men have laid siege on me
But you have risen above it all

Grandmother, you house my flesh and blood
Keep them safe, for I will never join them
Only wandering will rock my restless soul to sleep

Grandmother, forgive me
Unfilial child am I
To forever leave you wanting
