Carrying On.

I taught myself how to win wars

Without a single bruise.

She is constantly rebranding and changing up her style, I guess, to prove herself. And as I was watching this, I thought to myself, "Do you not get tired?". We are so accustomed to showing up as if we haven't been through the pits. Everything around us is scary. Yet we're still meant to just carry on. It's hard. And I think that's where my mind was at when writing this (this is a snippet of a song I'm writing). Shit is hard.
