Upon Receiving the News

Inclined
to prepare for
the worse but hope
for the best, she felt as
vulnerable as a child on the
playground. cornered by a ruthless
bully. hoping this was all just a figment
of her overactive imagination; let the battle
begin... she was prepared ... to fight... and win.

Face up and see results. A bully is overbearing in the face of the meek. They withdraw in the face of resistance. This person will triumph!
