True Strength

August 11, 2008
By Amram Altzan, Brooklyn, NY

If you have true strength,
Then maybe, you have no weakness?
Maybe, strength means muscles?

But true strength
Is not any of those.
Strength is mental,
In your mind.
If you face a problem,
Will you back down?
Or will you overcome it?

True strength is knowing when to go,
And when to stop.
When to help yourself be great,
And when to help others be them.

That is true strength.
The tool that we can use,
Not for violence, not for war.
To use this tool,
To change the world.
