You call me a fragile little snowflake

so tender that mere words launched in “jest” would

break me.

You think I cry at every little whisper.

Little do you know!

The only thing tender about me are my muscles.

True, they have been clenched

— to keep me from punching you in the throat

because, let’s face it: violence gets us nowhere and

this control takes enormous strength; nerves of steel.

See — your words are not my undoing.

Your actions make me stronger.

I see how easily you show offense

when I call you out.

No, I am not so tender.

I am hard as crystal.
