A Strong Man



A poem Syllea wrote in dedication of Egfor, someone she is growing fond of and feels she is gaining a friendship with.

 

A strong man,

From the outside.

But full of sorrow and grief,

From the inside.

 

A man who'd lost more,

More than anyone should.

Brandy at times,

Seemed to be his only friend.

 

Little did he know...

A young teen,

Looked up to him.

Seeing him as a brave man.

 

She too had lost,

Lost and Lost and Lost.

She felt a bond,

A bond that could not be explained.

 

She wanted to be strong,

Hiding her sorrow and grief,

But showing it

When the time was right.

 

She wanted to be loved,

The way he was

By her father figure.

A man she cared for deeply.

 

A strong man,

From the outside.

But full of sorrow and grief,

From the inside.
