the strength of softness

Can you persevere with the strength, not of the mighty oak,
but rather of its sapling?
Can you be so strong as to bend in the gale,
ready to stand again in the calm?
Or will you, like that mighty oak, be SO ‘strong’ that the
wind snaps you at your roots?
Can you be the softness that signifies strength?
