I Rise

It doesn’t really matter
Knowing pain is knowing Yourself
Why do I choose this?
Because it’s sweeter than a woman’s kiss

What’s real anymore?
Who can I trust?
Right on the cusp
Standing as I must

Believe, believe in Yourself
Quiet whispers remain
Like the weather just before the rain
Going into someone else’s pain

Touched soul deeply
In the presence of innocence
I rise and rise
Until I catch the tide
To where my truth resides
