- If you think you can crush me, oh please-
You are sadly mistaken.
Sorry to disappoint you,
But I was born with a stubborn gene –
Which gathers strength with each attempt
Of humiliation, defamation, degradation.
And I was born with a funny bone too
That laughs with derision at every manly effort
To make a joke of my life.
Do check with those who love me,
You might be surprised
How much we laugh together,
As we dare to grow more lushly
Every beautiful day.
It hurts , does it not
To see joy where you imagined sorrow?
Words, where you imagined terror?
Life, where you imagined death?
You have been encroaching into my sanctuary
Even after the boundaries closed shut long before,
Trying to spread the deep malaise of your nature
To infect the roots of my happy tree
Poisoning everything green around
With your fumes of hatred, lies and malice.
You have gone raving mad in the attempt,
I am merely bemused at your antics.
My roots go deep down the earth of my own truth
Which , is deeper than the whole falsehood of your beliefs.
Because, my truth is this:
Every human being deserves to be free- from what ails it
And be happy.
Try that bitter medicine for your chronic illness.
