Let Me Be


Let me be weak to be strong
Let me be strong to be weak
Too strong for my weakness
For strength sometimes
Weakens the strengthened
And strengthenes the weakened
The brave count on it
And lose sight of their bonds
Thus the death of empires
The debris of kingdoms
The collapse of Titans
It is no strength
to tame a harem
It is no strength
to make a fame
It is no strength
To move mountains
The greatest of strength
Lies gently in suffering
Suffering for the sake of truth

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
