 once upon a time


People demand we be strong
Have the strength to carry on
In the face of extreme distress
How many of us feel bereft and think
Why bother, who cares where we go?

That is when strength is needed
We face adversity, work through problems
Not realising that this is strength
We display strength in life every day
Strength is found in caring and sharing

Not in brute force and violence but in gentle gestures
The quiet word, the hug, the friend who listens
These are the people who best display strength
Let’s be strong and show greatness by being there
When a friend is in distress and we don't ignore their pain.
