One Hearts

You may find yourself

Digging around inside yourself

Looking for your heart

And after years

find one small precious gem

Which you place in a gild cage

And shine a spotlight on it

You won’t talk about the

Alarms or the guards or the dogs

Or the fence

The meager covet, and therefore hide their wealth.

Kings put it on display.

Hang your valuables on a post by the street

Mount them on a pedestal in the public square

In Each moment I am undergoing

Open-heart surgery

In gratitude, and in Devotion

I offer up all that I have

All that I am

  1. This is so gorgeous. I love the admission of the

    “Alarms or the guards or the dogs
    Or the fence”

    And the moving way it ends:

    “In Each moment I am undergoing

    Open-heart surgery

    In gratitude, and in Devotion

    I offer up all that I have

    All that I am”

    Beautiful write ❤
