I Am Strong
This has been my mantra lately
I do not really know how strong I am
I want to be as strong as the oak tree
where squirrels climb
and somehow know the tree will hold
I want to be as strong as the sea
I think about all the ships
that it carries to different destinations
I want to be strong like the mountain
everyone wants to climb
to see the world below.
I am strong like my ancestors
the women who laid the foundation
for me to reach my dreams
Hey, I am strong!
I am strong!
I am strong!!
