Strength isn’t always about who has the largest biceps,
The thickest calves,
The most powerful triceps.

Strength isn’t always about who can lift the most,
Who can throw the farthest,
Whose won fights to boast.

Strength is those that have guts,
Who sit in the bus,
Who vote when others say they’re nuts.

Strength is breaking bad rules,
Sitting in restaurants,
Swimming in public pools.

Strength is doing what’s right,
Not backing down,
Not hitting back, but choosing to fight.

Strength can be found in those who stand up,
Who don’t give up,
Who won’t give up,
Who won’t surrender until all is right.
