My Superpower

By Anesha Atul Shende

They tease me, I tolerate
They argue with me, I tolerate,
They scold me, I tolerate,
They lie though I know the truth, I tolerate,
They try to cheat, I tolerate,
They try push me aside, I tolerate,
They come back with excuses, I tolerate,
They love me back, since I always tolerate
Might be they didn't get a girl like me,
And they never will get,
I always win with this quality of mine,
Even grapes have to bear pain to become tasty wine,
At last I end up being patient and kind,
I consider this as my superpower to win over mankind...
