Day 68: The Comeback

They waited for you to fall.
They prayed for your influence and success to end.
They wanted nothing but to laugh in your face and watch you wither away.

While they had their moment to make you the laughing stock of the industry,
     You didn’t give in;
     You forged ahead,
     And came back–literally–like nothing ever happened.

Back on top (where you belong);
On everyone’s best-of lists.
Several number one singles and millions of album sales later—you did the unthinkable:
     You trumped the critics and the haters;
     Made everyone fall in love with you all over again.
In fact, you gained some new fans—
     And inspired a new generation of up-and-coming stars.

With your convictions and faith you came out of the storm unscathed.
If that’s what they call a comeback—
     Then you’ve rewritten history.
