Choosing strength

“You don’t know how strong you are

Until being strong is the only option for you”

This is what I had heard so far

But I beg to state this may not be true

The statement seems to suggest

That strength is a reaction to an external force

This sentiment I would like to protest

Strength is a choice you make, not the last recourse

Alone and faced with adversity

You can be paralyzed or be proactive

Both are choices you can make freely

The choice you make is the one with which you live


I do believe that we are beings resilient

In times of stress our survival instinct is revived

We choose to be strong because it is our intent

To live, to succeed, towards happiness strive


Let life throw its curveballs at me

I choose to be strong, to deal with them freely..
