tough…  I’m tough

I repel the evils

the forces that pull me

into dark rooms

and scarred faces

I’m tough and strong

able to withstand the onslaught

I will not let the succeed

in bringing me down

to play in their games

I walked through the swamps

and lost forest

my will and patience

were stretched… tested

to see if I will break

but I never did

I stayed on my feet

keep moving, one more step

I rose above the filth

laid firm my moral base

a foundation of confidence

toughness and strength
