What is it that you hold against me?
Very gift of God I did not seek?
Accusations false and rumors weak?
My refusal to shrink, run from truth,
abandon certain call, betray core?

Why dismiss the possibility
that I am still who I was before,
that I respect, admire, adore
who you really are, were meant to be,
honor who you’ve always been to me?

Being strong is not usually a trait one looks away from, unless they are fearful of their ownselves as being the lesser of the two. We just can't give up on them..
Excellently penned Dawn. Lisa
