Strength

What is that quality
deep inside, that helps people
keep it altogether?

that inner light which
shines deep inside
that gives them the faith
that they will survive

it, any of it, all of it,
the inner surmountable challenges
of Life with all its gory complex details?
What keeps you carrying on?

The quality i think,
is the one some call
Strength. Its somebody I
seem to have lost, its missing
from its slot-

along my backbone,
an missing piece of armor,
these thing called strength.

I think I lost it and replaced it
with something utterly
useless a thing called
Fear.
