Tag Archives: emotional strength



We all know its meaning

We have all felt its intensity

Like a burn on our skin

when we open the oven and forget to wear a mit.

We all know its coldness as well.

Like freezing rain smacking your cheeks in the winter.

And yet we yearn to feel something, anything

that reminds us we are human.

We all need its loving.

It fills our hearts;

it guides our actions.

Some people tell us not to be emotional.

I say be the emotion.

Feel for those who are hurting right now.

Allow emotions to flow.

Love your neighbor.

Help people in need.

Tell someone how you feel about them.

Love life. Love yourself.

Our positive emotions will collide soon hopefully

and so strongly, explosively

that the virus will run home scared.

Peace and Love.

Health and strength.

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!!
