Strong

I want to be

strong enough

to rip through

an orange, 

sink my nails

past the zest. 

I want to be 

strong enough

to not feel the

lingering ache

of sadness in

my body.

I want to be

strong enough

to change the world,

my world. 

I want to be

strong enough

to know that

I am strong

enough.
