God Made Me Strong

Updated on June 8, 2013

Vanessa Williams

Through Faith we become the impossible- The fanatasy.


I am sure He took a day off after he made me.

I was created as a masterpiece.

Full of color and contour; of light and peace

I was made strong.

I was fashioned as the angels are, and clothed in the sun.

I was purified by the light and my heart didn’t only beat, it hummed.

God made me strong.

I was designed to outlast all space and time.

I was created to endure.

I was created to survive.

God made me strong

As strong as the slaves in the fields,

I am as strong as the breath of life

I am as strong as a drunkard’s will.

He made me strong, strong enough to survive.

I have survived all lust and love; I have survived the nightmares and the cries.

I am hand crafted from the earth.

I am eternal by design.

I am woven from silk, and my essence shall not die.

God me made strong you see.

He surrounded me with tests.

I passed all my toils; I am ranked among the best.

I am strong

Like diamonds

Like sand

Like the wind

Like the rain.

Like a Mack Truck

Like bricks

Like pain

Like rocks

Like clay

I am strong

Like the ox

Like the elephant

Like a wolf.

I am steel

I am a precious metal

I am the earth.

My strength is my heart

My heart is my power

I pulsate with electricity

My enemies shall all be devoured

I am strong like He intended

I am here and not away

It is not intentional that I am superior

I was born this way.
