I know that You’re here, awake and aware.
I stifle myself when the fight sets in,
But I know You are strong, You care,
And I can’t be lost in the cracks again.
Why do I bow where there is no king?
It was never in their authority, nor ability,
Watching from outside everything,
To assumptively appraise the inmost of me.
No more taxes, no more dues,
Where I am no citizen.
You alone, and only You,
Speak informed criticism,
And You speak it in love.
