    A trait that's heaven sent
    least I believe it's true
    still standing tall
    no matter what they do
    Can't say it's easy
    some try really hard
    to knock me down on my tail
    when they think I've let down my guard
    Well, surprise surprise,
    my guard is never completely down
    even when it seems surely, I must
    be forlorn, tearful, and wearing a frown
    Many are those who have tried
    schemed and tested me
    Yeah, I guess it is the God above
    who has truly blessed me
    Not saying I'm special, we all
    have this gift that's fathoms wide
    That gives us staying power
    and fills us with pride
    All we need to do is to look
    deep inside
    And just allow God
    to be your guide
    Guess I just have to forgive
    knowing that, I'll never know when
    someone will find a need
    to test me again...

    hold that faith deep inside

    sometime we all are put through a test by our own well felt

    Hey there j'hiah. I agree God gives us the ability to foresee. Sometimes what we foresee is murky, and other times, it's crystal clear. Thanks a million, poet extraordinaire.
