TEARS:sketches of strength pt2

As I sit and relate to the pain within my heart

The pain the world can only look onto and mock

Expecting me to be strong in my wake as I walk

Because they said a man is only strong if he can’t fall

But fall I do,not once but often

As I have found that my strength is not in how firm I stand

But is rooted in the foundations of how many times I can rise up when I slip

It is built in the warmth of my sorrows and my strong desire to do better

Better not through scrupulous means

Means so common place if you don’t then you are lost,or stupid,or naive say even weak.

Better not through the detriment of others

But better because I can rely on my imagination and the strength of the Almighty

Better because I have learnt that I am not strong because I don’t cry

But better because I have learnt

that in my tears I see better and gain strength and vision of tomorrow…..

    I love this! Shedding a few tears doesn’t make you less of a man. Besides, one must fall so one can rise, no?
