myself

I am still myself

though my outward be changed

inside lives the soul

God created

undiminished

the same

I water it with hope

plant seeds of courage inside

though all beauty be taken from me

my soul still resides

the life I built

remains intact

love and goodness

whole and fast

I be changed some

but the things that make me

remain strong

I catch hope where I can find it

hold it tight

to take me through this night

and find daylight
