My Heart Lies To My Soul - Poem by Faye Fleming

Although I’m fair, just, in truth
My heart lies to my soul
It hides its needs due self for others
In vain it cries, save yourself!
For you, they shall never discover
I quiet my thinking, content I be…
when a small child they place upon my knee
My face it smiles, I’ve no control
Yet, my heart bleeds, but they don’t know
What lies ahead for this wee soul? I shudder
Was one thought given to the many?
I think not! No, not any
A selfish notion set into motion
Another now is born
Trudging through life in search of itself…
battling for better only to discover,
what I now know and shudder
To do our part would be a start
My heart lies to my soul
