Strength

From the roof a heavy weight hung low
Held up by strings in number three
In time the weakest two snapped and let go
And their loose ends fluttered in the breeze carefree

With the lone string holding on as hard as it can
I began to wonder if it was fair
That the world should reward the strength in a man
With the burdens that the weak cannot bear

"That the world should reward the strength in a man
With the burdens that the weak cannot bear"......I haven't heard more profound, a sentence, in quite a while!
