"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make"


Paul McCartney, The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics

Sometimes, when you really need something and you aren't even sure what that something is or how to get it, be it comfort or care or just a reminder of who it is you are, you search for one thing and stumble across something else entirely that speaks eloquently to your soul.  Yesterday, I was lucky that way and stumbled into this...



Megan’s just a Wallflower
Pushin’ through the hallways
Nobody knows her name
Sometimes High School feels like a minefield
Just tryin’ to get through the day
She’s an easy target for small minds
They don’t know that inside
She’s strong as steel forged in the fire
Bargin’ through the scared and the tired
‘til all the weak is gone..
She’s strong
Susan counts the tips and looks in on her kids
 to make sure they get their homework done
They’re gonna go to college
She’ll work as many jobs as it takes for her daughter and son
Some nights she feels defeated
 Don’t mistake that for weakness
She’s strong as steel forged in the fire
Bargin’ through the scared and the tired
It’s always darkest before the dawn
She’s strong…
She’s strong enough to bend but never breaking
Strong in the face of the battle ragin’
Set on movin’ on
Strong as a prayer arms wide open
Strong as a will that won’t be broken
She’s strong as steel forged in the fire
 Bargin’ through the scared and the tired
‘til all the weak is gone
She’s strong
