Key To Survival

I take my coffee

With a splash and milk

And two sugars

But when it’s made

By others

They often forget

To sweeten it

And instead

Serve it bitter and foul

I used to complain

But now

I let it slide

Enduring the bitterness

On my tongue

Until eventually

I can’t even taste it

Oblivious to the foulness

And that is how

I have learnt to survive

In this world
