Poems about strength.png

 

Four poems about strength…

 

Strength

We gain strength

In the most ironic way

We find it when

We are weakest,

When we think we are breaking,

Into a shattered chaos

We learn to have the strength

to let go of what

Doesn’t make us strong.

– Chrissie Pinney

Strength

Mental & Physical 

Emotional, raw.

Strength keeps you going

When you feel you can go on no more.

If you’re wondering if you are strong,

The answer is always YES.

Don’t underestimate the silent strength that you don’t even know you possess.

– Ms. Moem

I, with a deeper instinct

choose a man who

compels my strength,

who makes enormous demands on me,

who does not doubt my courage

or my toughness,

who does not believe me naive or innocent,

who has the courage to treat me like a woman.

– Anais Nin

separater

You gain strength,

courage and confidence

by every experience in

which you really stop

to look fear in the face.

You are able to say to yourself,

‘I have lived through this horror.  I can take the next thing that comes along.’

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

– Eleanor Roosevelt

as always, Happy Reading
