THE ADVERSARY

Yes, I understand there are Highs and Lows, But why did you send me to face them alone? When you smacked the new, blue rosary to my chest, And said “There lives the lion, now do your best.” Was that carelessness you were wearing, Or was that confidence? When you called me to your Quarter, […]
