Thick skin

They say I need thick skin
That I am too weak

But I’ve been through plenty
Maybe this is where I peak

They tell me I need to get tough.

I tell them I just feel too much

You don’t need thick skin
You don’t need to be strong
It’s okay if you’re sad and cry all day long

It’s okay not to be okay
No matter what they might say

I know what I am and need to be
But wearing my heart on my sleeve Is a part of me

I don’t need thick skin
I’m just a body with a sensitive soul within
