don't let them win



They will beat your ass

black and blue

like a week-old banana

versus

a screaming 16-wheeler


then


applying a thin coat of gold

paint

over your bruised

and mangled body

place a price tag

with your worth


but don’t let them win


when they light their fires

just to watch you put it out


but


the extinguisher they handed you

is filled with gasoline

and

yellow confetti


you can’t let them win



because if they do

they won’t even know it


only you will


while it corrodes your dreams

like battery acid

spilt into a placid sea


life will go on

as normal

for them

that is why you can never



let them win
