Joke

I can do this because I don't do it.
I am never really here.
My resilience is impressive.
Or maybe I should say 
malleability; I am pliant,
adaptive. 
I am beyond anything you could 
pretend to do to me.
This is just a joke.
When I apologize -- it's because I can; 
my pride is not as fragile as yours; I can
take it.
When I self-deprecate -- I can do that, too.
No matter how much I tear myself down
there is always more of me under that.
I go on.
I do this because I can.
