The Strength Least Expected

Somewhere in your mind are all the strengths you seek
But say not into your mind 'Do I have strength?'
For only the laughing strength will answer 'Yes'
And only the teasing strength will answer 'No'
And all others will be silent, or will stay asleep.

Somewhere in your mind are all the strengths you need
Not always in the moment you expect.
But in the moment that matters.

Thank you Stephen once again for taking time to comment.
There are a lot of reassurances built into this poem (how I comprehend it when I wrote it and when I read it) but I am glad to know that reassurance carries across to the reader too.

Thanks also to everyone who has clicked 'Like' for this poem. 💐

A very thoughtful poem. The notion of a silent majority of strengths is reassuring.

Thank you Brian, I am happy that the thoughts wrapped in the poem landed still in a state worth thinking about. I'm glad you enjoyed reading it and thanks for taking time to comment.

Thank you Paul, you are right this is a dramatised and realised version of many common truisms. Thank you for taking the time to comment and thankyou for your positive wishes, I hope I won't need to seek much but I feel like I have a get out of jail free card now. May you find all you seek also.
