Within myself I reside,
it my safe haven from the lies.
From all the wicked webs.
And those who don’t wish me well.
I trust no other as much as I trust she.
If that’s hypocritical,
Just know that she is me.
Within myself I seek comfort,
Like a favorite pair of jeans.
broken into it
Like a second skin,
a badge of honor.
Within myself I find truth,
if it doesn’t match yours.
I don’t know what you expect me to do.
Within myself I seek faith.
Only God can carry me this way.
No one else can help me mend.
No one else is my spiritual friend.
Within myself I seek joy.
Outside sources are fleeting.
They’re always taking never giving.
Within myself I seek peace,
The foundations of being happy.
