Cheers to You

July 24, 2008

A tribute to you

My many smiling villains

You who turned wicked plots

Ways to bring me down



But you haven’t.

You didn’t.

You won’t.



For all your evil tricks

To pull at my confidence

Pound on my insecurities

Pick at my self-esteem

It was in vain!



I’m better

Stronger

Wiser

Because you

Would have me crumble



But I haven’t.

I didn’t.

I won’t.



So, in earnest,

Here’s to you

For showing me

I can roll with your punches.

I’m better for it now.



For your failed plans

To shatter my dreams

Stamp the best of me

Smash my self worth

Thank you!
