A Strong Man - Poem by Earl Taylor Jr

A strong man isn’t the one that can lift 1000 pounds
A strong man is the one that can lift his family spirits

A strong man isn’t the one that wins every arm wrestling contest
A strong man is the one that lets his young child bet him at every arm wrestling contest

A strong man isn’t the one that never sheds a tear
A strong man is the one that tears up when each of his children are born

A strong man isn’t the one that gets angry and curses
A strong man is the one that keeps his cool even at the most trying of times

A strong man isn’t the one that never shows affection
A strong man is the one that always lets his family know what they mean to him

A strong man isn’t the one that leads his family
A strong man is the one that walk beside his family

A strong man isn’t the one who says he’ll be there
A strong man is the one that is there

Ask yourself, are you A Strong Man or A Strong Man

Signed: A Strong Man
