Stretched, exhausted and very tired
Today I rely on strengths from my trials
Though from my job I was unjustly fired
I stand on the strengths from my trials.
Sad, mad, perplexed and very confused
Yet joy overflows, courtesy of all my trials
By my associates and friends I was abandoned
Yet my courage derives from all my trials.
