The tower knew not its strength
But stood and held the weight of many
Amidst the storms
The rains and the high sun
It stood strong
It took all the bullets
And felt the painful airs
Eating into its lungs
But still stood strong
Until a little child knelt at its feet
Shed tears
And showed what was known to be the strongest tower
Its ruins blocking many
Killing many
While hurting many
Then it dawned on it
That it is stronger
Than it knows
Low self confidence
Is its only flaw in strength
