i am telling myself not to be jaded
just because the world doesn’t see
how pure things are between you and me

i hold my head high even as i feel my feet
sinking in the sands of uncertain times
because i know you are within me

your smile i put on my eyes as the sharks
masquerading as dolphins encircle me
waiting for the perfect kill

i shall not fear no matter how fates can
be sometimes so cruel, how man
can often be crude and vile

for in you i see the truth budding
like a rose in the cusp of a morning
redeeming and eternal.
