A burning


He stands with dignity in his heart

speaks very little even when given a chance

holds dearly to truth

a burning he demands

even when it hurts.

Unimaginable he still believes

in God, beauty and all living things

after walking through hell

so many times

in flames of pain.

  1. Sometimes a heart handles everything. Other times the mind struggles to comprehend. It is all about believing dues have been paid in some form or another. In the end, truth is the only feeling I must feel. Without it, life nor love exist. Thank you, Rose for writing and knowing me. Changes are coming soon. I can feel it very strongly.
