Change Of Heart


I forgive

though the texture of my heart

will never be the same

Once, it was so smooth and soft

back when I only knew

that I just wanted

to love all others

Now, I’ve learned that

such a pure simplicity

will constantly be challenged

when nothing in life

could matter more

But why couldn’t you

just let me keep believing

that the sweet pure spirit

of love, would insulate my heart

from any permanent damage?

False love comes in an array of guises

many of which affect our sight

but that which you allow to enter your heart

should make you and your world feel light

True love does not rip your soul apart

it simply fills you with joy, breath, and life


Change is not a stranger

though neither, is he a friend

I know his visits are inevitable

but lately, he shows up fairly often

largely obtrusive and very disruptive

It takes such a long time

to warm up to him

I search for the good in him

but acceptance is a difficult process

Eventually he does go his way, but usually

he takes someone dear to me

along with him, so, no

I wouldn’t call him my friend


A muse amuses

sometimes uses

even abuses

an open mind

But she’s most unkind

leaving one in a bind

when off she goes

We must face the woes

all up in throes

our hearts attacked

thoughts gutted and hacked

We admit we need her as we beg her to come back


Taking a back seat

may be the best choice

for taking in

all the beauty

along the roadside

instead of risking

a likely crash

as driver, if you fail

to notice the signs

of an upcoming dead end

Shades of red , degrees of blue

they come in many colors

There’s even a purple one

that combines attributes

of both the red and blue

 I think a bright yellow

version might be nice

for a change


Love lingers on, even

 after much of hope has passed away

with time, and the earth seems

flat again; it’s sharp edges cutting deep

 Still, some continue to struggle

in contradiction of the calm

that peace desperately needs to breathe

Confrontation has no part in the nature

of love and peace, therefore

it is never true when one says

they are fighting a war for peace
