Sonnet: I Love My Foes
I love my foes for what they've been and are!
They helped me keep my principles on earth;
They made me braver, turn into a star,
And realize the purpose of my birth!
My life was made quite challenging indeed;
I kept off vices, nurtured my virtues;
They made the grass in me, a robust reed!
I learnt to keep wary through their dear cues.
Without my foes, my feats couldn't have been great;
They goaded me to tread my lanes in life;
They helped me choose the heaven's narrow gate!
My trust in God grew more because of strife!
The foes I know are not the only lot!
The more success I get, the more they plot!
