Standing Stronger

first time in my departure denying what was there,
coming back a second time was confirmed, more aware,
such genuine words spoken, but so impartially shown,
the pickings and choosings inevidibly known,
this fog lingered such unfairness to be seen,
my heart couldn't take this partiality,
so many spoken out after longruns of time,
shutting their mouths, and leaving it behind,
my heart crushed, why didn't they try,
to speak their hearts, to speak their minds,
was this intimidating force too much for them to handle?,
could it be just their voice alone through fear would snuff out their candle?,
my God is bigger than all of this put together,
in the end, faith in loves cause was worth this storms weather,
avoiding loves words, resorting to acting in scene,
my vows are real, it's between HIM and me,
this is how powerful my God is,
without saying a word...HE moves from within,
grasping loves attention, it was all worth it,
for within my heart, i stand for his purpose,
oh the freedom i feel now to love again,
next round, next time, the stronger i stand!
