"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."

Grandfather, I know
I know I am the blood of kings
I know I am ice and fire
I know I have a heart of stone
I know I have the strength of steel

But, Grandfather, you see
They have drained me dry
I don't feel your indomitable will
Coursing through my veins
The music of my pulse is fading

Grandfather, teach me how to breathe
Grandfather, teach me how to be
