The Strong
The strong are the fragile and wild,
They are the sweetly ephemeral,
A flickering of flame, and then gone.

The strong cast their dreams downriver,
Never knowing if they'll reach the sea,
And then swim desperately after them.

The strong are the ones with no strength,
The ones who consume themselves
Doing wonders, as they burn from within.

The strong have been lost along the way,
They have no reason to be around,
No home, but the one under the stars.

The strong are the ones who gave up,
The ones for whom life is too much,
But still they somehow soldier on.
Author's Notes:
The strongest people I know are the ones who think they are the weakest, this is for them.

Well written. Great poem. I really enjoyed reading this. So true. Wonderful. Very powerful. Couldn't have said it or wrote it better myself. Great job.
