Prompt ~THE HEART OF WHO I AM

Marguerite Daisies

THE HEART OF WHO I AM

by John Yeo

Take a seed from a pod that contains many seeds

Scattered and shattered for germination

When searching for the perfect conditions it needs.

~

The twists and turns doing battle as life proceeds

Building and forming the parts by gradation

Taking a seed from a pod that contains many seeds 

~

My heart develops when life’s journey finally succeeds

In shaping my dreams by my life’s circulation

When searching for the perfect conditions it needs.

~

Experience builds on experience fulfilling my needs

Chapter follows chapter in swift succession 

From a seed in a pod that contained many seeds.

~

The heart of who I am develops wherever life leads

Beating steadily throughout my life’s duration

When searching for the perfect conditions it needs.

~

The heart of who I am is shaped by my deeds

Broken and healed by the heights of loves elation

From a seed in a pod that contained many seeds.

When searching for the perfect conditions it needs.

THE PAGE WHERE THE HEART SPEAKS WORDS

by John Yeo

The page where the heart speaks words

In a changing world Is a private space 

In the book of life with love to be heard.

~

All outside interference with hate deferred

With feelings approaching this secret place

The page where the heart speaks words

~

A page of heartfelt feelings transferred

Begs forgiveness and spurns disgrace

In the book of life with love to be heard.

~

To gain this page is an honour conferred 

A book where words and feelings trace

The page where the heart speaks words.

~

A page of personal feelings stirred

The words where feelings take their place

In the book of life with love to be heard.

~

The page of feelings read word for word,

Thought and life with love’s story embrace

The page where the heart speaks words

In the book of life with love to be heard.
