So What

i've been told many times
i'm too sensitive
that may be so but so what
i'd rather be that way than
hard or cold-hearted
or even indifferent

i keep looking for some place
that's having a sale on thick skins
the portable kind
you can pull out of your purse
for when someone is being cruel
can't find one not even in the classifieds

i've always said sensitivity is
a good thing and if you don't agree
so what it doesn't do
any good to tell me any different
maybe if you could be in my skin
say for just one day
you'd be sensitive too
