written by: The Quiet Quill



I won't be bullied,

I won't be told,

I will remain in tact,

I will never be cold.


I won't wait to live,

I won't stand in line,

I will lift my head up high,

I will smile and shine.


You may throw hard words,

You may be snide,

But I won't be hurt,

And I will not hide.


Keep discussing a life

You know nothing about,

I will notice it all,

But I won't scream and shout.


I dare you to be kind,

For your own happy ending,

I'm the same as I was,

I just gave up pretending.


I've picked myself up

After a nasty fall,

So if you can't be nice

Then say nothing. At all.
