…with the utmost respect, 2017

Okay I get it…
You’re stronger than I expected
I came at you from roads unexpected
Remember when I gave you that health scare
But your faith was more than the nightmare
And the time you lost your job
You got on your knees like job
And prayed down rain on your fields
Your harvest came and I wouldn’t yield
So I sent in wolves to attack
Friends you thought had your back
Tearing down
Selling out
Leaving you when you needed them most
But you stood sturdy, a single host
Scaling the walls raised
Fighting the wars raged
Coming out better, stronger
So yeah, I get it…
You’re stronger than I expected
So I free you of my wiles
Walk on with a smile
