Lessons learned despite the negative influence on life.
Give It Your Best Shot

If your aim is to demoralize and degrade me,
If your goal is to trample me into the mud,
Go ahead and give it your best shot.
I still am able to rise above you.

If your words are cruel and bitter,
If your blows are painful and bloody,
Go ahead and give it your best shot.
I still can and will rise above you.

Do what you will as your feeble attempts amuse me.
I have learned that as long as I do not retaliate in kind,
I will always, always, rise above you.
So go ahead and give it your best shot.
