Strength

I can be as strong as a brick wall
ready to keep anyone from my secrets.
I can be strong as the asphalt.
Pay attention to my dark insides.
I will break from tears of the clouds.
I can be strong in ways you don’t expect.
I can be strong as a butterfly
able to distract with my colors.
My strength can be gentle.
I can be strong as a bear
ready to strike if somebody rubs me the wrong way.
I can be strong and change the world.
I can be myself.
