Poetry: “My strength”

The sort of stuff we need to tell ourselves now and then, as a pep-talk.

***~***~***~***

My strength

 

I build my strength inside of me

I gather it up tight

I place it there, inside a box

For when I’ll need it most

 

I carry my strength inside my chest

I fill it to the brim

I guard myself against all that

My life can throw at me

 

I save all the strength that I can

I can’t let it go to waste

I need it for my darkest days

When I fear for my own sake

 

I have much strength inside of me

I need to remind myself

I sometimes feel so small and weak

But I know that’s not the case
