My strength! ! *


Find a hook, find a rock,
Anything to hold onto,
Don't let go and hold on tight,
And you'll get through it with them.

When darkness feels all around,
Mum's scowl making me shiver and cry,
I cling to my rock, my strength,
My Dad's love inside.

Find your strength, whatever it may be,
For me it was Him, who will yours be?
Confidence? Brother? Sister? Friend?
There is someone, they are in front of you!

Let your rock, your strength hold you high,
Let it all out to them and let out the pain,
My Strength is my Dad, the love he always gave,
With my inner flame, saved me from the grave.

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
