Present to Presence

Self discipline. 
To say no when you want to say yes,
because that is what's best, 
in the long run.

socked a punch
in my middle.

I was now present.

Flesh and bones.

She cured my indifference, then he.

A taste for life.

So I sank deeper, tried harder, loved stronger in order to color the white with your hue.

I was determined to bend and weld life, love, my body, my mind into the very shape I had always envisioned.

I was brimming, no longer sinning, my moon had returned.
