Sometimes you just have to deal
With things as they happen,
No matter how terrifying--
Despite the constant fear,
Facing the horror and resisting the fate.
Nightmares come even when awake.
Sleep is reality and reality is fake.
So put up a finger and say "F" it all.
Laugh at all those who look appalled
Brush your shoulders off.
Rub dirt into the wound.
Nothing can hurt you unless you allow it to.
Face your demon and kick its ass.
Send it back from which it came.
Shout to the world that you will never be tamed.
Deal with what happens with a strong will.
Bow to no one and bend for naught,
Because when the end comes at least you can say you fought.
