I am never really here.
My resilience is impressive.
Or maybe I should say
malleability; I am pliant,
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
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.
