Against All Odds - Poem by Qiniso Mogale

Against all circumstances
I rise again
Against all situations
I rise again
Against all trials
I rise again
Against all tribulations
I rise again
Against all storms
I rise again
Against all odds
I rise again.

Against all odds
I rise again
Every time I fall
I rise again
Every time I'm floored
I rise again
Every time I'm knocked down
I rise again.

I've been punched and left for the dead
I've been knocked down but not out
I've been buried alive but like a seed I've grown
I've been ruled out but my foes were wrong
I've been put through fire but instead of being burnt I came out purified
They dug graves for me but were themselves buried
Against all odds I've triumphed through Christ.

    Against all odds / I rise again
    Every time I fall / I rise again
    instead of being burnt I came out purified.... With faith and righteous ways, one can win over all odds in life. Faith facilitates resilience in the face of setbacks. Thank you, Qiniso.
