Resilient

Where do you hide

All that makes you unhappy?

What thick skin must you have

To shield yourself from the wrong

That life throws at you?

Have you never scored any cuts that sting

As lemon juice was spilled your way?

You are something, I have never seen before.

Someone who seems unstoppable, undeterred and unyielding.

Teach me if you can how to put aside

All misery and only smile

At all the stories it brings.
