I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Response to Word Prompts Help Creativity Week 36 (Strength) ~ "Strength"; "Fake Strength"; "Strength in His Love" is the poems my muse came up with for the word prompt, "Strength."
Strength comes to us in many forms. Sometimes it's a mental or physical ability with determination to succeed.
Other times we fake it til we make it. We are head strong.
Then there's the all consuming love from God giving us strength to face another day.
"Whitney Houston ~ I Didn't Know My Own Strength"
Superb mental or physical ability
Testing one’s inner core
Etched like stone
Not lacking determination
Grasping a new level
Honoring one’s commitment.
She wishes her endurance was like super glue
to help her stay the course,
giving her the stamina
to beat whatever comes her way.
Yet it’s fragile and weak,
crumbling beneath the pressure
as she watches a storm brewing in the distance.
Head strong and stubborn,
two qualities that often come back to bite her,
guide her towards a path of least resistance,
helping her to be strong
when she wants to hide.
Strength in His Love
In his loving arms
I can face any obstacle
crossing my path
for he gives me strength to keep going.
When darkness tries to destroy the light
he grabs me,
catching me before I fall
showing me a love
that never withers.
He defeats my battles
placing my feet on the right path
before I am left behind, lost and alone.
He gives me courage
to withstand the storm,
strengthening his love inside my heart.
"Vertical Worship ~ Strength of My Life"
you're in TODAY
is developing the STRENGTH
you need for TOMORROW.
