Strength is within

Looked around me for strength

Strength to make my dreams come true

Strength to live a life of purpose

Strength some days to go through the routine too.

Found enough inspiration around me

From family and friends to colleagues and neighbors

From fellow country men to fellow citizens

From yellowed pages of history to crisp news paper stories

Of uncommon men and women

Of people in every region and religion

Inspiration is abound every where.

Little did I realize that

The intention to be strong is a seed that sprouts within

External inspiration can only be a trellis to support

All the strength to grow, to face odds

Comes from within.
