The Mule

The Mule

I'm not a fighter or a warrior.
I'm not brave or strong
in neither body nor mind.

I don't have an iron will.
I don't have a heart of gold,
or mettle of any kind.

I'm not strong of character
and I don't have self control.
I'm not my ship's captain,
nor am I the master of my soul.

But there is one thing I am proud of,
one thing that keeps me going.
It feeds me, my fuel.

That thing is my stubbornness,
my unwilling-to-give-up-ness.

I might not be the mighty lion,
or a wolf or a bear,
but I am stubborn, stubborn as a mule.
