Not Against Me


You want to break me
but you can't
because I know better.


I know you are broken
just like the rest of us.


Your actions are
a response to your pain,
not against me.


Your harsh words
roll off my back;
they don't affect me.


I don't take your treatment
personally because
it's directly to someone else.
