I'Ll Thank You Anyways.. - Poem by OLUMIDE FAMILUSI

I will make it 
It doesn't matter what the enemy says 
I will make it 
Because I know i have you 
On my side 
A winner never quits 
Until that day when I win 
I'll continue to look to you
Life may have drawn me back
Thrown some spanners in my wheel 
But i'll look to you anyways 
They gathered unto my flesh 
But you made them meat
For my food 
I have been flung around 
More than the usual 
But I won't complain 
I won't complain 
Because I have you 
You know..it could have been worse 
My wall could have broken down 
My resistance could have let up 
But how can I say that 
This was all my doing 
That am aren't down in the pit already 
How can I say that 
This isn't you 
That my bubble 
Hasn't swallowed me 
I just want to thank You
Thank you for all You do
Thank You for my imperfect life
Thank You 
For making me strong 
Thank You for all the stops 
Thank you 
For the trials 
The tribulations 
The heartbreaks 
The disappointments 
The frustrations 
Who knows who I would be 
Without these hills 
Without these battles 
I am grateful 
Thank You anyway..
