Even If

Even if,
Others do NOT give me the kindness I give them,

Even if,
Others “joke” in ways that hurt me,

Even if,
Others talk shit,
And I’m unable to make a come back,

Even if,
I’m so polite,
And others just stay mean,

I feel I can still,
Find peace,
By letting go of tense resisting,
And allowing for further and further accepting,
Of what I can NOT change,
Of what I can NOT avoid,
Such as their meanness in response to my kindness,

So even if,
They just keep being mean to me,
Well,
I can still seek peace within me
