You are strong because I gave you burdens to carry.
You are fierce because I put predators in your path.
You are sly and stealthy because I gave you reasons to hide.
You are quick and agile because I gave you cause to run and fight.
You are fearless because I gave you terrors to defeat, to crush beneath your heel and tread upon until they crumbled to dust beneath your feet.
I gave you eyes before you were born. As you grew I made them to see.
