Strength of a Man

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man is not seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle his spouse.

The strength of a man is not in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers.

The strength of a man is not how many friends he has.
It is how good a friend he is with his wife and kids.

The strength of a man is not in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.

The strength of a man is not in how hard he hits.
It is in how tender he touches.

The strength of a man is not in the hair on his chest.
It is in his Heart that lies within his chest.

The strength of a man is not in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can understand and overcome.

The strength of a man is not in the volume of his voice
It is in the wisdom of his words and the softness of his tone.

The strength of a man is not in his controlling ways of others
It is in the way he controls himself.

    I agree with you changinglotus, but sadly there really no strong men around, even the so called religious leaders treat their wife bad, my heart really goes out to sister muslimah going through hell with a man who preachers and says another, sister allah will give you the “strong man” that you deserve, the best for you always. Amen
