Not the tangible something unseen

down deep inside in the in between

where others may doubt and not believe

your belief is not what they perceive


A life lived not for others or on what they say

for it is up to you to find another way

it is within your own mind the strength to find

to all others keep your belief blind


What lies within stronger than all that surrounds without

these people do not know what you are about

supposition rumor predisposed opinion mean nothing to you

it is only your soul that knows what is true


Belief in oneself comes inside through highs and lows

it comes in the places no one else knows

always it should come first from your own soul

never depend on others to make your belief whole

    Clean, pure and true poetry with the freshness of newly laundered linen on the line snapping in the breeze.
