She tried to hold back her tears.

Not giving them the statisfaction of seeing her weak.

She didn’t want to show them her weakness.

That would make her look powerless.

Her heart was full of hate, fear and pain.

She desperately wanted to let out those feelings she had felt for so long.

She wanted to be a kid again right now.

At this moment.

She wanted to be the little bubbly girl who loved life.

Who never worries.

Who never stopped laughing.

But that was all long gone.

She knew.

She can’t go back to the past.

So, she gained back her strength.

She endured.

She controlled her emotions.

She strived.

And finally 

She striked back.
