My Strength

Written in the 1990s.

My Strength

I cannot make rivers
Or throw bolts of lightning
I leave temples standing
Not a Philistine frightening

But I am strong

I did not kill serpents
When I was but a baby
I’m not near invincible
Though my mother was lazy

But I am still strong

The burden of the world
Is not mine to bear
But enough I’ve to handle
For Her do I care

I need to be strong

Throughout bad times and distance
I will love Her always
During loneliness and doubt
I will love Her all ways

My love will keep me strong
