True Strength Is...

True strength is,

Having no reason to live and still getting up in the morning.

True strength is,

choosing to shave instead of cutting your throat after you get up.

True strength is,

Having a cup of coffee instead of a shot of whiskey to start your day.

True strength is,

Smiling at the assholes that plague your life,

True strength is,

coming home from work and popping a meal in the microwave instead of popping a fist full of sleeping pills,

True strength is,

Simply living, day by day,

With hopes of tomorrow being a better day.
