There Are Two Strengths

There are two types of strength.

There’s the bold strength.
It’s when hard rock is your anthem
You shake your fist at the world and spit in the devil’s face
You make your list and you get it done
You walk with pride because you know you’ve got this
You’re beasting through life at break-neck speed
There’s not a doubt in anyone’s mind that you’re doing just fine
You laugh at adversity and thumb your nose at your troubles
Because in the end, you know you’re strong and nothing can hurt you.

Then there’s the quiet strength
When you nod your head to a soulful, sad song because that’s where you’re at
You stand your ground as the foundation of your life crumbles beneath you
You smile as salty tears glisten on your cheeks
You face the storm and don’t run for cover
You take breath after breath, even when it hurts
Because you know it will pass
The dark days may be here now, but the sun has never failed
Just when you think you can’t take any more,
You realize that you can
And you keep going
