Inner Strength

I may not be as buff as you,
I may not have your strength.
My muscles may be thin and weak,
and my bones may not be sturdy.

You may think that being strong
means lifting weights each day,
or maybe you think that strength
comes only from your body.

But here is the truth.
 
Strength not only lies without,
where people can see you're tough.
Strength can come from within the heart,
and not many people notice that.

This is why I'm strong:

I am strong because I get up each day,
even when I don't want to.
I am strong because I keep trying,
even though I want to give up.
I am strong because I can say,
"Tomorrow will be a better day."
And if I break down and cry,
I know that that's okay.

There are many people out there
who are just like me.
We're all struggling with something
and out lives may be a mess,
but no matter our size
or our looks
or our shape,
we all have inner strength.

And that's the strongest strength of all.
