"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."

I am tired of men who say
'My God, I love a strong woman'.

I cannot love anyone
Who loves my war wounds
More than me.

They will let anyone
Say anything, do anything
And watch in glee as you grit your teeth

And when finally you snarl and roar
Like a baited bear

They will say

Look how fierce she is
'My God, I love a strong woman'.
