Taking A Stand

Doubt filled my mind and soul
I was shaken, taken by Your words
They felt like truth, they seemed real
I wanted to squeal, make an appeal

Then I took a deep breath
And another, just slow steps
Towards my heart
In my heart I found pure love

Those words seemed shallow
Cutting on purpose
Aimed to control
Fill an existence so hollow

I didn’t stand my ground then
I will now
Cause in my heart I know
My soul is filled with gold

With determination,

Ian Altosaar
