Such cruelty is faced day by day
by Jacqueline Dougherty
and though I face it, it is taken gracefully.
Though you push me and spit in my face,
I simply just go onward, day by day.
You see, although I'm in agonizing pain,
it doesn't matter because I haven't changed.
I haven't morphed to suit you or make you happy
I just simply ignore all of your harshness.
I am tired, that, I'll admit, but it doesn't break me.
Not a kink in my soul you have left
from all the cruelty you've done.
You may think you're breaking me, but you're not.
You're only making me stronger until.....
One day I'll be stronger than you
