Victory



 



 



I am prepared for victory, should victory arrive



I will be ready to stand tall with pride



I don’t welcome adulation though I know it will come



with victory there is nowhere to hide.



All my transgressions, mistakes I have made



will shine out like never before



trolls will come feasting on what pigs won’t feed on



and yet some idiot in his bedroom will keep score.



Victory is always tainted by the noise of the few



unfortunately they shout louder than most…



they have a need to be heard knowing they have nothing to offer



and simply upsetting your day is their boast?



There will be those that welcome the path you have walked



wishing to learn from the experiences life gave



there will be others that claim that God was my salvation?



And I should thank him for every step that I made?



To those I would say that I am glad he is your Shephard



that your faith is all that you need



but I’ve never seen a hungry baby satisfied on faith



yet every day the Church cries out in need?



Victories will take many different forms



we have to recognise and welcome the win



though always paying heed to those set to destroy you



cause your victories are not always a win!?
