The Strongest Woman in the World

 

You see all these guys

Walking around with

An assortment of

Things to prove

 

Many have big

Muscles and spend

Long hours in the gym

Lifting iron and hitting bags

 

Many have

Tattoos

 

My own father had

15 ½ inch arms, a

Narrow waist and

A well-defined chest

 

For his size, he

Could lift a

Tremendous amount

Of weight

 

Fellas, fellas

You got so

Much to prove

 

Let me tell you, I

Saw an elderly woman

In a Samoan church

This past Sunday

 

The choir sang and

The pastor said

 

Hallelujah, glory

Bitta God and let’s

Give each other a

Holy ghost high five

This morning

 

And that old

Lady, who wasn’t big

In the Samoan

Sense

 

Lifted her hands

Towards the sky

A bit closer to

God

 

Lifting the

World

 

And all of

You with

It
