A man’s not strong from the way he lifts a weight

Neither is he strong when he burns with lots of hate

What really weighs a man is how he holds his heart

Listen to my words about how strength really starts

Your muscle is so big but it’s really made of dust

The anger in your eyes will one day be weak as rust

But the love of a righteous man will always stay strong

It takes more power than you can know to forgive those who are wrong

For kindness is like the water, it can carve a stubborn stone

Or like a little seed of which a powerful tree is grown

An angry man can feel big, but his influence stays small

Compared to that of someone’s love, in which it covers all
