I’m not going to submit

Can it really be?
Is it true what they say,
Honestly?
I know I’ve been there,
Made some mistakes in the past.
But it’s not there forever, right?
Nothing’s going to last.
I hear they say mean things,
Curse my name, even.
But I don’t really care;
I have something to believe in.
Sure, it wretches my heart.
I never said I was perfectly fine.
I just keep living knowing
None of those curses are mine.
There are days my soul aches
And even my mind starts to lose it.
But at least to these lies
I’m not going to submit.
