I only have my honesty and belief in myself to guard my soul through this....
I know things because I feel I know them,
it is the truth I have to write;
The diamond is nothing but a confused rock,
its beauty is the sparkle we find.
When my heart speaks and my fingers listen,
they dance like the rain in sunlight.
I say things because I feel their meaning,
like tripwires that release in my mind.
I write because it frees me of my fear,
the chain that strangles my voice;
In the flight of my dreams I'm free to soar,
in endless skies where clouds don't cry.
Each moment I spend in this cryptic world,
I do battle to make the right choice;
With rhythm and rhyme the wings at my back,
hope conquers my inability to fly.
