Heart beats fast, emotions run wild,
It is an important matter, it is not mild.
Battling disappointments, his and mine.
What is fair, who gets to draw the line?
I know I have tried and put up a good fight.
Yet I still have not found favour in his sight.
I want to surrender and just leave.
But I still have things that I need to stay and weave.
I can’t end the story, not just yet.
Till I have put up a show, with all standards met.
I find comfort in the supports that have emerged.
Never have I thought I have so many allies that converged.
I am now ready to take on the new Mike.
Renewed and reaffirmed, I shall take the first strike.
