My Weakness Is My Strength

Poem by

Zeenat Iqbal Hakimjee.

 

If there can be appeal

In the scar on that face,

 

I will take my weakness

With a lot of grace,

 

If every tumble gives you a chance

To rise erect with a new stance,

 

When the going gets tough

The tough get going

 

Yesterday, I fell to-

Get up again and start moving.

 

In the classroom the young boy

From his neighbour snatched the toy.

 

The truck rammed into the car

With all its might,

 

Killed the occupants and threw

Them out a sight,

 

The sky roared with thunder

Scared stiff as they went down under.

 

My weakness shall he my strength,

May I never misuse it

 

Even for one moment.

The meek shall inherit the earth.
