What makes you Strong?

Thu, 07/31/2014 - 17:00 -- Boster


What does it mean to be strong?
Does it mean you can run faster
Than the guy behind you?
Or that you can jump higher 
Than the person below you.
Or is it the strength
 to carry on?
When everything seems
 to go so wrong.
Inside the house it began to rain,
I tried to cover your head with my hands,
I had no umbrella, no plan,
and you got soaked in that rain,
And I would get soaked too
Because I couldn't cover you
or myself from that rain
And I would wish everyday
That I was strong
