I Won't Back Down

I’ve tried everything,
I’m on the last straw.
You can tell me to give up,
But I won’t let up,
Back down,
Or give up.
I have decided to smile at everyone.
And to laugh at every dumb joke.
Now no one can make me feel like I’m pulling down sunshine.
I won’t let anyone tell me that I am lower than them.
I won’t back down from any challenge that I know I can take.
I will not take another arrow to my heart.
Or a knife to the back.
No,
I will not let up,
Back down,
Or give up.
