I'm Not Weak

Don’t call me weak,
because a movie can cost me a tear.
I can be emotional, so to speak.
But calling me weak, I don’t adhere.

Don’t think I’m weak,
because a death of a pet is too much to bear.
I love all animals, whether they have scales, paws, or a beak.
But don’t think I’m weak, no don’t dare.

Don’t believe I’m weak,
because my muscles don’t show.
It’s the inner strength you should seek.
Don’t believe I’m weak, I have strength, I know.

Don’t say I’m weak,
because I won’t fight.
I am without a violent streak.
So don’t say I’m weak, for doing what’s right.
