THe Strength Of A Man (9/6/12)

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It's in the width of his arms that encircle you.

The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It's in the gentle words he whispers.

 

The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has.
It's how good a buddy he is with his kids.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It's in how respected he is at home.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits.
It's in how tender he touches.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the hair on his chest.
It's in his heart, that lies within his chest.

 

The strength of a man isn't how many women he's loved.
It's in being true to one woman.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It's in the burdens he can carry.
