I'll not allow your bitterness
to cause my soul to wither
I'll protect the gentle parts of me
From every blow that you deliver
I'll not be torn apart by
hurtful comments that you make
I'll guard my heart and back
from every spiteful stab you take
I'll fight your negativity
as you try to pull me in
I'll greet your snide remarks
with a smile, maybe a grin
I'll meet your words of anger
with laughter and good cheer
and hope someday you'll see
life was meant to be held dear
I'll wrap my bliss around me
to protect and keep me warm
a shield against your anger
a cloak against your scorn
I'll cling to my tranquility
enjoying each beautiful new day
and before I become just like you
I'll turn and walk away.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
