How I Nurtured My Soul

Your words
spilled like vices from some ghouls
and you assumed
it will pierce my heart inside out
and your vicious gaze
raw and obtrusive
attempting to throw me off
from my own valiant sight
the venom that your spread,
the atrocities you subscribed
all those unwanted distractions
never ever bothered me,
for I nurtured a soul
shielded from such obnoxious world
and I smiled and walked away
with grace and pride
