Go ahead and try.

Try to siphon the happiness from my life.

Try to break me down again.

Try to crumble my spirit to dust.

You won't succeed,

For I am strong now,

Stronger than I have ever been.

I have made peace with

The wrongdoings committed against me.

I have made peace with

My shortcomings.

I have made peace with

The fact that not everybody will

Love me or even like me.

I no longer need your approval,

I no longer need to look

In your direction to be happy.

I can be happy all on my own.

So go ahead and try.

Try to destroy me all you want,

You will not succeed.

I am strong enough now

To stand on my own two feet

Without meaning against you.

I am strong now,

And I will not succumb to your torture again.
