They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
That searing pain is a source of strength
That your well gets deeper
With each kick that pushed you under
That you should just take it on the chin
Bear it with a grin.

Well fuck that! What fuckin’ right have those fuckers to tell you
What you should or shouldn’t fuckin’ do
So what if you fuckin’ feel like bawlin’ your fuckin’ eyes out:
“It’s my fuckin’ right to react the fuckin’ way I please
None of your fuckin’ business”
Is what is right.

Them big bullies, in all shapes and sizes, male or female,
It doesn’t make a difference.
So they steal your lunch money, play you for a fool,
Isolate you, give you a black eye, say mean things about you,
Stab your back and call you a teacher’s pet.
It matters, it matters. Don’t say it doesn’t matter.

It isn’t bad enough that you’re already hurt
By some arseholes trying to negate you
Along comes a third party to further shush you
Quit whining! They said. All indignant.
As if you were at fault for having reacted.
Do they tell the bullies to quit? No sir-ree!

The world’s become so blasé, no-one bats an eye-lid
We couldn’t care less.
Cry-babies better learn, to shut it or else.
As nobody gives a fiddler’s.
Well fuck’em I’d say!

I couldn’t care less if the last thing you need
Is somebody tellin’ you they’ve just been bullied:
Just because you refuse to admit it doesn’t mean no victims exist.

So F-U-C-K-Y-O-U!

I'm curious why you posted a picture from 2046 to this poem. I rather liked the movie and I have to admit, the poem sounds like the character in the movie.

Yeah, I just thought that the impertinent look on Zhang Ziyi's face somehow fits the mood of the poem perfectly. I'm curious though which character in 2046 you think fits the poem... Ziyi Zhang's character or Tony Leung's? I don't think Ziyi's lovelorn character fits the poem's (even though that particular look of hers does), whilst Tony Leung's character probably does in a way in terms of the revenge he's wreaked on the women throughout the movie.

Btw, thanks for commenting, you're the very first commentator on my new blog :o)

Actually I thought Ziyi Zhang's character had a bit of that. She fell in love with Tony Leung almost reluctantly. She charged him $10 simply to make it impersonal and keep him at a distance. I think she was saying 'fuck you!' to him because he'd never commit to anything in his life.
