Renewal from the ashes of my desperation
Soot-covered child, bound by the stillness of inaction, birthed by the necessity of survival.
Fleeting and fluttering like the wings of a butterfly, temporary beauty in this ugly world.
Like a phoenix I died within a blaze of conviction.
God knows my heart to be true.
Born again through faith in goodness and light.
I hold these truths dear
'neath the skin and near my soul
I am a good man.
Falling, faltering, stumbling like a fawn
Wanton violence in the form of words thrown at at me, but my own fire protects the fragile soul enclosed
And though sullied souls savor every misstep I take
I bare the belief that there is still magic in the world.
True love exists.
Live it through the action of self-sacrifice.
It is the virtue and the catalyst that binds valor and duty to the woefully disenfranchised.
Gracious thanks for all the lessons we are taught constantly and consistently, never to be forgotten for they are our grand teachers.
I am renewed. Tender but strong.
Rest in the comfort of empathy.
Live in the pursuit of happiness.
Die in the hearts in of our loved ones.
