The Quietness Of Strength

Sometimes in life we cannot show
The way we truly feel
We have to smile and just pretend
A facade that's far from real

Someone who pushes you to extremes
Or a person who isn't sincere
Sometimes you want to walk away
And act like you really don't care

They shouldn't take silence for weakness
For one day they may be surprised
Although they may think you're just a wimp
you may put tears in their eyes

The quietness of strength
is a powerful thing
That may help you forgive
 though they're wrong
And although I know
 it's the hardest thing
Stooping to their level
 will not make you strong
