Gates of My Heart

 

My Heart

A Fortress

Where

I Keep

My Love

Inside

 

My Heart

A Place

Where

Love

Remains

Unable to

See

The Light

Unnourished

Misunderstood &

Confused

 

My Heart

Ached

Learning

Along

The Way

Not All Glitter

Worthy

The Inner Price

One is

Expected to Pay &

Sacrifice

 

My Heart

Needed to

Be Saved from

The Savage

Suffering

Inflicted

Within

The World

Unkind

 

My Mind

Eager

To

Comply-

Obliged

 

My Mind

Powerful Device

Took Charge

Created

Rigid Thoughts &

Beliefs

Required to

Survive

Blocking &

Barricades

Guarding

Feelings

Surveillance

System of

Being

Always On

Vigilantly

Perceiving

Build

Unenterable

Gates

Forged with

Inner-Strength &

Deep Desire to

Make it

Through

The Day

Isolated

My Heart

Accepting

The Reality of

Living

Cocooned

My Vulnerable Heart

 

My Heart

‘Felt”

Safe

Within

The Great Wall

The Protective Gates

Suspending

Self in

Time

 

My Heart

Kept on

Beating

Despite

My Not Feeling

Barely Heard Beating

Beyond

The Cavity of

Self

Barely Living

Despite

Being

Alive

 

My Mind

Worthy Warrior

Kept

My Heart

Safe

Preparing for

The Time

When

My Heart

Must

Surrender

Itself

Knowing

The Gates

One Day

Undoubtedly

Degrade through

Decay

Exposed to

Outside

Certain

Knowing

Even

Strong

Metals rust &

Rust Turns to

Dust

 

My Mind

Persistent

Created

Sanctuaries

Safe Places

In Effort to

Gently

Invite &

Welcome

My Heart

Destined

Intentions

Prearranged by

My Vulnerable Heart

Presenting

Opportunity for

My Heart to

Experience

Feelings

Within

The Safety of

Self

Within

Self

 

My Heart

Little by Little

Exposed

With No Protection

Without Choice

Sampled

The World

Through

Filters

Provided by

My Heart

 

My Heart

Acknowledged

The Foundation

Build Upon

Suffering &

Sorrow

The Protective Gates

Safeguarding

My Heart

The Dwelling

Required Fortress

Safekeeping

My Heart

 

My Mind

Along with

The gates

Began to

Show

The Durres from

Distress

Exhausted

Defeated

Demanded

Rest

Requiring

Reboot with

New software of

Thoughts &

Beliefs to

Guide Self

Setting

New Direction

Needed to

Thrive

Within

Journey of

Self

 

My Heart

Resilient

Intuitively

Aware

The Time

Came to

Greet

Oneself

Trusting

Inner Strength

To Survive

The Final

Test of

Time

 

My Heart

Magnificent Vessel

Tabernacle

Where

Pure Love

Resides

Gifting

Gifts of

Healing

 

My Heart

Sacred Sacrament

Creating

Communion with

Outside

Expressed through

Rites of

Words &

Actions

 

My Heart

Displays through

Ceremonies

Nourishing

Self &

Others

 

My Heart

Spiritual

Salvation

The Divine Grace

Endlessly

Flowing &

Overflowing with

Love &

Light

 

My Heart

Fulfilling

My Purpose

In Life
