Within me

Fri, 07/16/2021 - 10:25 -- mrapook

With my eyes
i can see the globe turnin’
you can tell, from inside my eyes
whether or not i’m lyin’

In my heart
something says, you must realize,
even though, your yearning heart
has another prize.

In my soul
i can feel the ongoing mystery of life
catchin’ up to your exposed emotions
carving  them up like a knife.

so let your eyes
     see the truth
let your heart
     do your talking
and may your feelings
     be from your soul

the only thing life has to offer
sentience and death,
we decide the rest —
how we survive life's woe.
