Our identity

What defines us awes us What sums up in this unending sojourn that we call life Each offering different taste to us, depending on the façade that’s dominant In this multifaceted itinerary, the valleys we must cross, The unknown lands we must journey to Like Abraham, taking on the green light and matching into unknown To fight unknown enemies and slay imaginary ghosts We are defined by grit to take on the sharpest blades and skillfully Discerning what to do with them Simply because it harms the conflicting side doesn’t mean it spares us A blade knows no direction, respects no flesh in as much as its thrust With this truth, in this light, we are armed with the double-edged sword Encompassed with knowledge never to perish but to relish in slaying The only enemy we know, fear Scars, sure sign of resilience We tried and failed and got the experience of what it is to set sail in the rough seas In not waiting for the cool because the savior whispers, be still He calls out tranquility because he knows it roars, Sometimes it gets rough, sometimes it breaks banks Greatness lies in faith to restore serenity So we arise to the occasion and shine With wit to overcome whatever threatens to overshadow us Whatever whispers that we can’t do it Deconstructing evil in hood of good and with our consistency Demystify shear nimble masquerading as perpetual light So with infant steps we begin, for He is our strength With disappointment to fail tackling stronger bones, We go back to milk, enduring uncomfortable weaning When expected to just grow fast, Hoping to tear apart the lion’s jaws like Samson To provide foreskins, evidential of our hard-earned success like David Because we march into that forbidden territory, Not because we have done it before but We are willing to do it And so, Seven times we shall match With our last breath we shall blow the horns And the walls shall be brought down!
