Be Strong

I see a bully in front of me.
He approaches, and we
Are going to fight.
He, a monster from the night,
And I, a flightless bird.
"No," I say, it's the word
I choose,
"I will refuse!'
Running away is not weak,
It is a strength that's unique.
Turning to peace instead of war
Will take your life very far.

A agree with this. People look at me with such shock when I tell them I've never been in a fight, but I don't thinkrunning away or avoiding confrontation is such a bad thing. It doesn't make you weak. It makes your will stronger than most.
