I Appeal, but Falter Not

Healing inside

Apathy beside

Why do you not trust me?

I am no different now

From when we last met

Why must you so hurt me?

Can you not see?

I’m becoming me

Returning to myself again?

Must I remain

Bound to the wordly

To the material and the vain?

But I understand

Fear and distrust

Can blind you to clarity.

Yet why must I prove

To be above reproof

My mind and my sanity?

Choice – illusion

Trust – fake

If belief must be woven to make.

But I relent not

On my path

Not even for your sake.

If I scare you

Learn me anew

Gain perspective from sight.

Assuredly, friends

I won’t fight

For might is not always right.

Silence, my ally

Isolation, my comfort

Only one thing I must assert.

In Him I stand

Confident and true;

My choice does not depend on you.
