patience and stamina

plenty of times i have been grateful and
always thankful each time i wake up
taking nothing for granted and
inside i am singing all the moments of silence
need for closeness with another person to the surface
causing relief from all the hate and disgrace
each touch removing a bit more pain
and lifting the brain up above the clouds and pettiness
nocturnal sounds from deep inside the darkness
doing everything i can to stay true to the color of my soul
showing these changes i went through since anyone knew me last
tasting the waters after i dive right in
away from the land where insults are conversation
murky water that most people dwell in
including the giving up of a purpose or values
no collection of words can pusuade me now
after the way we met i cannot be defeated
