I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

(SOMETHING INSIDE) SO STRONG




(Something Inside) So Strong is a song written and recorded by British singer-songwriter, Labi Siffre. It was released as a single in 1987 and was the song that brought him back to mainstream popularity in his home country.

The song was inspired by a TV documentary Siffre viewed in 1985 in which a white soldier was seen shooting at black children. Apalled, he penned the song as an anti-Apartheid anthem, which was a very serious issue at the time, advising Africans to stand tall in the face of adversity.

The song was the biggest success Siffre would ever have in his career, peaking at number four in the UK Singles Chart and bringing him out of self-imposed retirement and back into the public eye. 

A certain blogger has been having such a rough time lately that I wish that I could reach out and physically touch her but I can’t…I can only touch her spiritually. And my way of seeing her through the rough patches of life is to try to instill the words of this song in her. She has SO much going on and rather than taking on her burdens with no solution in sight, she can remember that she is made of STRONG stuff. She can know that as her pendulum swings back N’ forth, I will be there as she can remains still, go inward and find that something inside SO strong.
