You are not a bird.
I saw a bird on a traffic post the other day. It was hopping along across the top of it. It looked awkward, fragile and moved slowly. I didn't think it was ever going to get across.
Finally, it took off in flight. It's wings were strong and it glided gracefully and quickly to another post.
Birds are meant to fly, that's how we associate them as birds. They have legs but they seem to be more for the purpose of landing gear than walking. They can walk but they don't do it as well as they fly.
Often we try to be something we are not and it's awkward for all involved. When we are who we are truly meant to be, we can then find true strength. We are more powerful being who and what we are meant to be than trying to be something we were never designed to be in the first place.
A bird has been designed to fly, not walk. A bird's true majesty and strength can only be seen while in flight, not hopping along on two spindly feet.
Your true strength can best be utilized when you behave and do what you are meant to do, as well.
