The Verity of the Heart
 
The hidden secret to a heart's content
Lies deeper than any within
The verity of its greatest lament
Tells the story of where it has been
 
The aches and pains echo afar
The cries muffled by pride
Like jam stuck deep in a jar
The hurt stays forever inside
 
Within each man lies a brutal truth
That he is not so strong
That he wishes to find a use
For his hearts sweet poetic song
 
A song often left unheard
By a pressure to appear tough
A tune sweet like the song of a bird
That one could never hear enough
 
The truth that lies inside all souls
Is the longing to be loved
And inside there comes an bottomless hole
When there lacks a mating dove
 
A peace of mind which comes and goes
As if a seasons greetings
A feeling many have come to know
But passes oh so fleeting
 
Like geese flying south each brutal winter
A heart desires to be warm
And would endure the pain of a splinter
If it helps to weather the storm
 
But what it must learn in its lifelong journey
Is that a wound will heal in time
And not to lose faith from the constant burning
That leaves countless scars on the mind. 
 
A trip down an unknown path
Wishing the destination be known
Often bearing loves harsh wrath
Fear of being forever alone
 
As hard is at is for him to admit
It's the thing he fears the most
Hoping a belle would one day permit
His heart to pull her close
 
A true love his heart awaits
One that makes life's pain dismiss
That two would come together by fate
And live forever in bliss
 
It's a peace for which each man longs
The piece that fills the missing part
It is the peace that makes each man strong
Love is what fills the makes whole the hole in the heart.
