My Words For Me

My Words For Me

Though my face receives the shames of spittle,

My name is resilience, so I quit not.


Though my personality and intent are misconstrued,

My name is forbearance, so I quit not.


Though more filthy work and call tests my ego,

My name is humility, so I quit not.


Though more tongues utter my name in misrepresentation,

My name is forgiveness, so I quit not.


Though I have to wait,

My name is patience, so I quit not.


Though it hurts,

My name is endurance, so I quit not.


Though I fall,

I will rise, so I quit not.


Though I faint,

I will take a rest, but I quit not.
