I think about muscles firstly of course. But that is not all that strong means. I think of women who go to work when they are too tired to move because they have to make money for their children. I think of men who work all day long with sore backs and callused hands to bring home money for their families. I think of values and the desire to stand up for what is right and fair.

She gripped his hand, lips trembling but her eyes betraying nothing. It was all for the best. Nothing left to lose.

Strong makes me think of muscles, but also of soul. Souls can be strong when they fight against things that are oppressive or things that just don’t feel right. A person can be strong by lifting weights or by lifting others up. Strength is about whatever you want it to be about, as long as you want it bad enough.

He lookscold as he spits on his hands and rub them together, knees bend, teeth are firmly gritted. He can hear the intake of breath from the crowd. A girl at the front starts giggling. His fingers grip the bar. He snorts. Shouts. A camera flashes. He’s lost it.

I think that strength is ridiculously overrated in a physical sense. While many strong people are valued physically (athletes, Greek gods, WHATEVER), mental strength is much more admirable. Amazing thinkers (Anyone from Plato to John Green) have strength that is much more useful that physical strength. They can build or destroy the entire world with their minds.

this is what I dream of
my legs beneath my torso
keeping me upright
no hands on my back
to hold me

Strength can be physical or emotional. He is strong because he can pick me up and he can cry. He lets me see the things inside of him that are scary and violent, sad and true.

strong my hair is strong it’s long i keep it that way because it’s the strongest part I have. People do running and lifting and they are strong but I don’t know if we should call it that. Maybe they are built. I like to think that I am strong but sometimes we aren’t always sure. My dad builds things that are strong and I live inside one of them. I have to keep my hair long, I have to let it grow.

I flex one last time
before throwing my arm with all the power I can assemble
into his face.
He should never have sad that..
And probably I should never have hit him…
but he doesn’t know that..
