The strong and the mighty
Try to push you around
Whatever the weather
They don’t want you together
“Why are you happy?
How could you…without me?
I hold the power
How dare you flower?”
Is it jealousy or arrogance?
Lack of love or loneliness?
Humility at their feet,
They trample you with conceit
Domineering seems to be their right
Insecurities weaken their hearts
Love vibes refuse to step-in,
Aggression is their sole weapon
Yet they fail to snatch smiles
Which build bridges across miles
Little houses are a haven of peace
They offer you ethereal ease.
