“I often ask myself
what true strength may be
and then I find the answer
deep inside of me”

Outer strength is there for all to see,
but inner strength by far is more important to me.

Outer strength can protect,
when the world its evil shows.
Inner strength will see you through the hard times,
and help you as you grow.

Outer strength can be attractive,
when used to do what’s right.
Inner strength is radiant,
and in the darkness is the light.

In our life things happen,
things can get pretty hard.
Something inside just keeps me smiling,
and telling me things are not that bad.

When I look around the world,
and darkness I do see.
This special little light,
shines inside of me.

Some people do not have this,
and often they get down.
I do wish I could share mine,
and put a smile where lies a frown.

I can not live without it,
Outer strength I do not need.
Inner strength is what’s important,
to the flower, it is the seed.

So then again, I ask myself.
What is strength to me?
Its that special thing inside,
that helps us to just be.
