Into the Heart of the Soul


In the heart of the soul,

Never a blank slate,

With questions laid bare,

Are carried there,

Our secrets not shared,


Grasping at straws,

A struggle of soul,

With trials and travail,

To understand how frail,

Our hearts so veiled,


In the heart of the soul,

A revelation is heard,

A memory of youth,

Reveals a blade of truth;

To yourself, be true.
