A troop of the enemy rushed my way sweeping everything on its way but before it reached me they were thwarted.
Hounds of demons came stealthily camouflaged like the American army in Iraq but before their scent reached my nose they were thwarted.
A hurricane of poverty forcefully jetted my vicinity but was thwarted. Its power diffused effortlessly like a bomb in the hands of a bomb disposal squad.
A whirlwind of trouble tried to uproot me but its mightyness was thwarted.
Like a baobab tree strongly rooted in the Zimbabwean soil, I'm still standing.
A swarm of negative words flew towards me like locusts invading a farm of wheat in Egypt
But before they reached my ears they were thwarted.
A gargantuan serpent slithered across my yard towards the place of my abode early one morning
But it was thwarted, its head crushed flat to the ground.
Tell it to everyone that every force of the enemy is thwarted.
Let every high mountain and every standing wall echo...
