I WILL SMILE THROUGH IT ALL…I WILL SURVIVE!
Snatch away from me all my relations,
leave me lonesome like a desert flower.
But I live not in vain.
Despite my seclusion I will bloom.
Through my loneliness I will smile!
Rebuke me with sword like words
piercing through my flesh creating a thousand fresh cuts.
Scarring my soul with your ugly remarks,
mark me with your hatred and wrath.
Through my relentless pain, I will smile!
Write against me and spread it like fire.
Defame me in the worst ways possible.
Snatch away from me my dignity, reputation and pride.
Even if not a single soul stands by my side
I will fight the battle on my own.
Through my hardships, I will smile!
Crush my emotions,
trample my heart.
Drain me of all human sentiments.
Push me into the darkness of the dungeon with everlasting grief and pain.
I will be my own glow worm.
Through my resentment, I will smile!
Burn me down.
Scrape out from me every bit of life.
But, like a phoenix I will rise from my ashes.
Through my revulsion, I will smile!
Try to erase my very existence.
Drown me in the sea of stern agony.
But, like a feather I will float to the surface.
Devoid alike of love and care
I will smile through it all.
I will survive!
