Define Strength

Strength is clear
It sounds like a room full of silent warriors with wise eyes
It smells like salty sweat dripping from an athlete’s body
It tastes like crisp, replenishing water on a scorching, hot day.
Strength feels like looking into a mirror and seeing your best qualities staring back at you.

i really like this poem. u can hear the quietness, feel the heat, and totally relate with the mirror. alot of girls and some guys dont really have a definition for strength. you've created the best by far. love it!!

thank you! I really wanted a strong sense of imagery in this poem. I'm so glad you felt that! :)
