When you learn to say NO,
Your victories turn to be over lasting
Family, neighborhood, city and the whole world
Are all mistaken,
They hate you
Only your tears are honest
Listen only to them,
Let their Fingernails be instilled into your wounds
Let them yell at your face
Telling you about your mistakes
Let truth take your shaky mind into its hands
Stare at your misery distress, overindulging
Feel your breakdowns, to the brim
Resort to GOD
Then, stand upright
Waiting for your next battle
On your waist, you are holding your sword
The sword, that made you mature
When you come back victorious,
Life will accept you with open arms,
Delightful smile, magic eyes
And a soft hand that will hang
Love badge over your chest
