I have grown up big and tall,
Nothing can bother me.
No matter what you try to do,
I’m as strong as I can be.
Hit me, kick me, I don’t care,
Throw out any threat,
Beat me, bruise me, I’ll just laugh,
Won’t even break a sweat.
Bash me, crush me, doesn’t matter,
You can even make me bleed.
Push me, pull me, anything,
I will never cede.
I don’t fear a single thing,
Not man or ferocious beast.
I will endure every trial,
From greatest to the least.
I can fight great battles,
Both attack and defend.
And I’ll emerge victorious,
On that you can depend.
Only one thing in my life,
Slayed me without a touch.
It was when my young love looked at me,
And said, “You aren’t worth much.”
