Smile, God loves you :)


Oh heart, why are you so afraid



Timid and forlorn?



Speak out now for you are not



And never were alone…







There were rumors of your misconduct



You were punished and then defamed



But never should I have shackled a heart



That was never meant to be tamed…







What has become of you I do not know



But know I that I was wrong



To tie you up in chains so tight



And keep you trapped for so long…







You were so content back then



With no room for grief or doubt



I held you back, listened to my head,



Ignored your screams and shouts







But in the process I have changed



People ask me if I’m alright



All I want to say out loud is that



My heart gave up the fight.







Now, it doesn’t speak to me



Just thuds and thuds all day



I have started thinking logically



But am I going the right way?







So I tell my heart to go on,



“You are free to wander around…



To feel the joys you had felt before



You are now no longer bound!”







Is it too late to shake it up



And bring me back to life?



Without ones heart and its advice



Can one truly be alive?

Holy cow! This is good. I don't think this is one that needs any advice. Well, aside from the formatting, which I don't know how to fix anyway. I loved it, especially the last and the second stanzas. I also like the lines: "To tie you up in chains so tight/and keep you there so long." Very powerful and thought provoking! Great job, 5/5!
