PERSEVERANCE

Tears tease the tumultuous calmness of my inner child
transforming it into a beast
where did innocence go?

demolishes any sculpture of joy

Dreams don’t lie in repetition
revealing your reality
Unlocking the key to my sanity
grieving your brutal honesty
I cherish me
hope is in my heart
