You’ve been through thick and thin,
You’ve struggled through the hard times,
The airs and the graces,
You’ve learnt to appreciate every passing moment with deep tenderness,
Remember how you suffered in 2008?
How your children almost lost hope, in sight of the gloomy days?
How your colleagues and your family seemed to forsake you?
The future looked bleak, didn’t it?
How no one never wanted to associate with you?
Didn’t you pull through?
It was indeed a season of weeping, mourning and gnashing of teeth but you survived.
Remember how you muscled up and stood by your children,
You walked with us through thick and thin.
You taught us to throw our souls through every open door,
When things get tough, in order for us to count our blessings, to stay put and to believe entirely in the Almighty.
The following seasons after 2008 saw us through,
through perseverance and sustained effort, we finally made it.
2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
WE MADE IT!
Now here comes 2018 with its economic instabilities.
Now that all cards seem to be stacked against you, why tremble?
as though its the first time,
Now that the future seems blurry,
Why hide your face in shame?
Aren’t you the same Zimbabwe of 2008?
Stand tall Zimbabwe,
Adversity tests authenticity!
