There is no strength in the size of your arms,
Or chest, or legs, or back.
All you do with those is push things around –
Pull them, move them, break them.
No mass is needed to show your strength;
The weak can be strong, too.
True strength is found in those who have the heart
To stand, defend, and love.
There are no smarts in the years of your school,
Or grades, or cards, or facts.
All the good those do is puff yourself up,
And make you look the best.
Wisdom is not found in your diploma;
Your “fools” know that is true.
Wisdom is found in knowing your mistakes,
And what to do with them.
The weak can be strong and fools can be wise;
It all lies in the heart.
