Give Me Your Best Shot

.

Tell me all the things that you hate about me

So I can put them into my consideration-incubator

And shine even brighter.

.

Tell me all the things that make you mad

So I can finally know what you're really feeling

And exonerate you from grievance.

.

Tell me all the things that make you sad

So I can listen to your story, show you you're not alone,

And lend you my launching pad.

.

Just say I'm nothing, I dare you

And I'll create my own destiny.

I've got no ego to stroke, so, good.

Break me down. It's healthy.

.

If you're gonna call me names,

Make sure they're at least creative.

I've got no time for wasteful obscenities

.

And if you're gonna judge, well,

That says more about you than it does for me.
