Strength


It's pulling it together when the walls collapse
in on you. Finding something deep within to
push you through the day.

Strength is knowing nothing can severe your
heart into a million pieces; even if forgetting
is easier to forgive.

A person can go from giving up and giving in
to channeling their inner soul and breathing
the calm, cool air. Strength is something
you must make all on your own; it's your home
grown love.

Coming in all shapes, sizes, and personalities,
strength builds your spirit and makes you become
the person you want to be. When you feel as
if you have nothing-no one; you shall take the
smallest person's hand and let their strength
with in you reign free.

Strength is enduring, heartfelt, and loving. More
admirable than some love. Strength is your safe
haven, your inner peace. For most strength
is more beautiful and pure when it's found underneath.

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
