Go Ahead Do Your Absolute Best

You’ll soon learn she cannot be destroyed

Try my friend, go ahead do your absolute best

Before you do there’s things you should know,

Listen very carefully, before you do attack her

Fling that mud but make sure it’s a good throw.


I don’t think you realise just how tough she is

She has been built to take your shit, you’ll see,

It’s just part of her day, a storm she laughs at

You see strong winds, she sees a slight breeze.


If she can defeat her demons, you’ve no chance

She’s stronger than those little devils these days,

So please go ahead, give it your very best shot

I’m amused at the thought of the things she’ll say.


You’re taking on a woman who has seen it all

She’s been cheated on, beaten on and flayed,

Stabbed in the back and taken advantage of

Left crying on the floor after she’s been played.


Her name has been dragged through the mud

On numerous occasions, not just once or twice,

She picks it on up and cleans it off once again

Smiling at you, making you believe she'll be nice.


She has lead a solo existence, through her pain

And has faced the worst of her moments alone,

That’s a reminder to you, that she is self made

Think carefully before you enter the enemy zone.


She may have struggled a time or two, broken

But it faired her well and she’s now built for war,

Pain has shaped her into a worthy adversary

As she heaves her troubles into a cloak she wore.


Again I’ll forewarn you, please think carefully

Choosing to take her on, will be no minor spat,

It’ll be a full on bloody battle, a long lasting war

Because you cannot destroy a woman like that!
