Embedded in My Heart


I want to write a poem,

Filled with poise and grace

That begs the mind to wonder

of the feelings I've embraced.


What cause have I to write this

What spurned this poem inside

As I pen the words here written

a deeper meaning starts to rise.


Is it poetry that's left me or some hurt to set demise.

Infused by crushing indignations and evil torrid lies

What veil has clouded over what impedes my writing’s start

It’s not the poetry that’s left me, For its embedded in my heart.


The people I encounter may come then soon depart.

The memories imprinted May taste of bitter herbs and tart

The sting of forlorn feelings, the betrayal that leaves a mark

intended to dismay me and give up before I start


The friends that have forsaken, the hurt they can impart

will be a passing moment a memory one day forgot.

But if I have this gift of verbiage, A gift of eloquence and art,

then it will forever remain with me, for its embedded in my heart.


But my conscience has its freedom From disparity and wear

For my friends abide around me Their compassion do they share

With virtue truth and passion their friendship rings of care

And strengthens deep within me So Life’s bidding can I bare


As I face the curt obscurities and on life’s pages leave my mark

I’ll pull from deep inside me with fresh pen my thoughts embark

and express my inner feelings to share with my friends impart

For the tranquility of poetry is embedded in my heart.

A poet to? That was a heartfelt message yes there will be those that we believed in , who failed us and it will become a passing memory. If it one thing nobody can take from anyone it is the gift of writing. Well written. :)

Thank you Angela, for stopping by and taking time to read, as well you Jacob. The poem was originally written as a comment for another here on hub pages (poetry left me stranded) but I had fun and decided to make a hub from it. Then I began changing the words and found it fit the way I felt and an individual that was trying to prevent my writing so I lengthened it and made this hub. I am at peace and will continue to enjoy writing as long as good people like the ones that commented here find it enjoyable. Thanks so much and God Bless.
