Questions of strength

Am I strong enough to rise above To leave offenses down below And squash excuses as I grow Look misfortunes in the eye Doing life, right by their side Am I brave enough to not look back To not sweat the things I’ve done Or sleep away my time with sun To keep on moving through the storm To never slouch, losing form Am I good enough to make you proud To make the world a better place And not just fill an empty space To be an asset, with a purpose And find the substance, ‘neath my surface

I think we as humans can do anything we set our minds to. Even overcoming our own personal battles with our perceived shortcomings. Life is, after all, only the survival of the fittest. When we stop fighting, we die. I love the depth of this one Anna.

You are strong enough, never lose hope.
