You Taught Me Strength

Mon, 10/22/2018 - 10:32 -- maus12

Even when I was small

Ignorant of the world

Unaware of what real life was,

You gave me the strength to face it;

To face adversity

To face pain

To face the unknown.

Without your guidance,

Wisdom,

I don’t know where I’d be.

 

You may not think it or

Feel it.

You doubt yourself sometimes

But

You’ve always symbolized

Spitting in the face of hardship

When life has beaten you down.

 

I know you say I don’t have to

Repay you for everything you’ve done

For me

But I can’t help but want to give you the same

Strength

Determination

Love

You’ve given me all my life.
