I wonder sometimes if I have the ego to get through things and people that try to beat me down. And when I make it through them, I realize I'm tougher than I look.
I wonder sometimes if I can walk the long walk or make the long drive.
And when I reach my destination, I realize I'm tougher than I look.
I wonder sometimes whether my brain will absorb whole new sets of rules
and skills as often, it seems, as every other day. And when I see myself
doing what I couldn't do yesterday, I realize I'm tougher than I look.
I wonder sometimes if I am too lenient a parent and not a strong enough
role model. And when I see that words I've said or actions I've taken have
made a difference, I realize I'm tougher than I look.
It's so easy to allow ourselves to feel weak and small. But when we look
at what we've handled and what we've accomplished, it is also easy to
see that, most of the time, we're a whole lot tougher than we look.
