I Am Stronger Now

I no longer fear what silence contains
no broodings or musings
that arise like the dead
from the graves in my mind
can possess me quite like they used to

I am stronger now. 

Instead, I listen to the birdsong
at my windowsill
that chorus of the living
which shakes my soul loose 
from all the dust that gathered 
in neat piles while I slept

Yes. I am stronger now.
