Kick me when I’m down

Spit on me.

Kick me when I’m down.

Take everything I own.

Make me drown.

You might not think I’m grown.

You might think I’m weak.

But I’ve got this.

I might falter.

I might fall.

I might crumple.

I might call.

Even if I’m on my own I won’t worry.

No matter the tears.

No matter how blurry.

I can count on myself and I’ll make it.

Fuck anyone else.
