A SINGING CRICKET

©Vince Pawless 2020


The strength of strings. Strong ties, the strength of words to do good. Strong love, strength like a quality. Strong arm, strength like a muscle. Strong stare, strength is between yer ears. Strength is in yer mind. Strength is the mental state of being strong. Strength will keep you well, strength will help where you are weak. Strength like the state of being strong, strength like what it means to be strong. If you have stamina you have strength. If you have determination you have a strength. If you’re of mental power you have a strength. 

A weakness can be a strength, an ignorance can be a strength. There are no stupid strengths. Strength is shared, strength is supposed by others, strength is a rumor most times, strength is courageous, strength is power, strength is luck, strength is serendipity. Strength is theatre. Strength is more than one pair of eyeballs pointing in the same direction at the same time. Strength is an army…of smiles, of agreement, of teamwork, of concern for someone else, of the will of yer heart, of the will of the greater good, of the will of any good whatsoever, of the desire to be strong in the face of tyranny, of want to be greater in yerself than you have ever known. 

Strength is potency. The strength of the plea. The strength of the argument. Strength against force, strength against language that may not be yer cup of tea. Intensity is strength, the power to rise above is strength, show strength, advertise strength, super strength, lack of strength. The strength of numbers, the strength of ideas, the strength of music to heal, the strength of words to understand. The strength of words to just say No. The strength of character to go another way. The strength goodness gave a singing cricket. You can manage that, now can’t you?
