Strength –

What is strength? This plant doesn’t look all that strong. It has a sharp needle at the top of each
leaf, but an interested munching animal would easily avoid it. The yellow stamen at the top of the
central stem look pretty, not intimidating.The broad red leaves form an imposing umbrella-like
barrier. But they’re just leaves. They can be folded in half with little effort. Just like a muscle-
bound human can be felled by someone with pressure-point knowledge.Inner strength will always
be best. The purplish stem is the strength of this plant. Purple is the color of royalty. We all possess
the ‘royal’ lineage and fortitude to weather any storm.
