Delusion - Poem by Walter Osauwagboe

Appearance changes a few things!
Within and without all matter
Lies the wealth of depth
Paved with overgrown weeds

Seldom explored but not forgotten
No man may see His heart
Yet none feign its absence:
The sound of each pound with each step

Reminds that matter has its base
Which sometimes he struggles to accept
And he coats the exterior
With a colour different

From his inners,
But thermometers are colour blind
And pyrexia can’t be hidden for long
All things were crafted

Not all by man’s hands
True he caps his head and
Hides under his shade
But the Crafter measures
The temperature of his heart!
