In my fragile mind,

You’ve sown the seeds of doubt,

With motives, unkind

You water them with lies,

Until they sprout.

At first, I fell asunder,

Under your hateful spell,

But now my heart rises up,

Intrepid, ready to break out.

I’ve laid eggs of hope,

A clutch, immune

You cannot touch.

And soon they’ll hatch,

Disrupt, despatch

Your hateful lies,

I’ll watch your doubtful seeds


And rejoice in your
