The Strength of a Man

by Jacqueline Marie Griff

The Strength

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 children.

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.
