I used these words to write the following poem: reason, imagine, weak, strong.
Strength of Imagination
Imagine the weak become strong
There is no reason this cannot be true
For even the weak have the strength
To imagine wonderful things
And this ability to go beyond reason
Can make a person strong.
With weak reason to sustain them
People forfeit the ability to use
Strong imagination to bolster
Their creativity in all aspects
Of their everyday lives
And they lose much that enlivens them.
The strong must not despise
The weak for there is no reason
To imagine that their positions
Might fail to be reversed
At some time in the future
Where fortune sees fit.
The strong have every reason
To help the weak imagine a time
When their strength increases
For by helping the weak
The strong grow more able
To reason and imagine for themselves.
