Tough girl isn't afraid of much Tough girl is strong And brave Tough girl has mastered the art of apathy The science of not giving a **** She is confident And swift Tough girl has trained herself not to care Walks with confidence Keeps her head up She is a whirlwind of resilience Withstanding each disaster Every hurricane She refuses to let the world break her down Her skin Is a combination of metals Her smile, a shield Bone made of iron She is incapable of corrosion Her heart always guarded She is unbreakable Knows how to put up a fight And win She doesn't give in And no matter how hard people try To bring her down She doesn't let them get to her But I Am not her Our resemblance is uncanny And I have the ability to pretend To fake a sense of pride long enough to believe it A concoction of false courage And intimidation But she Is not me Tough girl is everything I have ever tried to be Having spent hours practicing blank stares And learning how to walk Like the ground below you isn't breaking Trying to breathe like there isn't a storm building within Resistance is a skill I have spent forever trying to build But I am not solid I am not tough I am softness that wears rough around the edges A jacket built of barriers With barbed wire skin All of this protection And I somehow still manage To frequently break open I am not a super hero I can barely save myself Let alone anyone else And as much as I wish I was I am not tough girl As much as we look alike As similar as we seem I am not she I care too much Think too deeply And love too passionately But I'm starting to realize That maybe It's not such a bad thing Maybe the girl I've been trying to be all along Is not as put together as she seems Those who appear fine Are often the ones coming apart at the seams I may not be tough girl But I can still make believe.
In heaven Satan was the best, The worship-leader, very blessed Magnificent, all would attest Thought he'd be above the rest
He thought he should be in God's place That he'd slap Jesus in the face He fell from honor... fell from grace In the end he lost the race
God is TOUGH. They'll scream & shout! All Satan's angels in a rout In the end they got kicked out! Satan thought he had a plan Yep. He thought HE was the MAN Finished before the Book began He was like lightning as he fell And in the end he'll go to hell.
YEAH. God don't play. Don't take no guff. There's a point He had enough! Had His fill of Stupid stuff... Let me tell you,
GOD IS TOUGH!!
Pharaoh thought HE was all that. On a golden throne he sat Yeah, he WAS a mean ol' cat Hebrew sweat made his land fat
Put the Hebrews through a LOT But MOSES had another thought Pharaoh's heart was Hardened... caught Through Moses God Caused Egypt's rot...
Because of Moses' bravery Pharaoh ended the slavery.
God is TOUGH! They had no hope God gave Pharaoh Lot's of rope Through Moses God brought on a curse Plagues of sorts which Were the worst! Pharaoh thought He would be first But it played out As though rehearsed.
End of scene. Act. Then show! Moses cried, "LET MY PEOPLE GO!"
Pharaoh did as it appears THE HEBREWS WANDERED 40 YEARS!!
On the mountain God he wrote The Ten Commandments That he spoke. They were written for the Folk His very finger carved them out As Moses stood up on the mount. Moses came back for to find His people had just lost their minds! A golden calf is what they'd wrought With the gold that they had brought Moses made a golden draught And made them drink it as they ought.
He begged with God Not to destroy them! Other tablets to deploy them. To God's ways. There were Ten Commandments So the people's have a moral fence. God brought order. The Law was sent. So the people would repent.
God is TOUGH! So don't be fooled! He will judge... And by His rules! Those who follow are as jewels Those who don't are Devil's tools.
Now God has a dispensation To save the people! Save the Nations! God left heaven as a babe So the people could be saved! So His people could be well From spirit's sickness - Satan's spell. They called His name Emanuel.
From God's seed and divine birth Jesus came and walked the Earth His little flock he taught & gathered He was teaching of the Father. He taught goodness & great wisdom He taught us how to Find the Kingdom.
The Pharisees in anger brought His death upon Him, for he taught! He cast out demons. Healed many! Gave the people food aplenty! So the givers of the Law Hated him for what they saw Accused him of sin and vice So they crucified the Christ.
God is TOUGH! Jesus was cast down With bitter gall and thorny crown He put him in a criminal's grave So that many could be saved! Stripped of clothing and of pride The wrath of God was satisfied He put him in a criminal grave So that many could be saved!
By his blood and by his death He brought out the Lost, bereft. For three days he was Underground The women came and then they found He had come forth! He had the keys! From the devil took with ease Hell, death, and the grave He took all these!
Now, Christ in Resurrection stands He's the greatest of the grand! He gathers people from all lands To bring them out With a mighty hand!
But you'd better take advice...
Accept MERCY.... FEAR THE CHRIST!!
