Album
Name of Song: Renewed trust has dawned

Despite those distractions,
Duality and doubt,
Reactive responses
leaving me too far out.

It’s a calmness to know,
What I know is my own,
Without all the many
distractions and groans.

It took quite a while
to just know myself,
Where things are just simple
and I’m not someone else.

Chorus
My time to start living,
Renewed trust has dawned,
For simply myself,
Devoid of self scorn.
I own what I know,
I see what I see,
I feel what I feel,
I’ve returned to just me.

Bridge
Quietly certain,
No rush to talk,
Listening seems better
And taking long walks.
You remember those feelings
of certainty for self,
Where you know what you know,
No real needing someone else.

Certainty of self,
Renewed trust has dawned,
Protect it and nourish,
and get used to the scorn.
