Only Heart Has the Answers to Those Most Noble of Mind's Questions
Only Heart Has the Answers to Those Most Noble of Mind's Questions

Countless books befell these ever seeking eyes

along with a past pregnant with unfinished quests,

with all those unnoticed blessings in disguise,

but life just went on throwing in more tests.


Preying alertly for yet another sound

to come from Truth ever stingy, mute,

swimming out of lies after almost drowned,

with so much to debunk, so much to dispute.


Libertarian madness of studious mind

made me see the world somewhat upside down

wouldn't have been worse if I had gone blind,

despite the crowd around, I felt alone in town.


Then, from that well of some uncried tears

emerged a Muse never seen before

brought with her a balsam of healing cheers,

turned all tears into wine forever more.


With a peeled-off ego, its demands on others

every breath is now a sigh of relief,

no one more to blame, nothing ever bothers

with joy flooding thoughts and every belief.


Paying my debt now to that child inside

who deserved much more than my probing life,

I took him by hand for a happy ride

free from any turmoil, free from any strife.


So, if God really shared His image with man,

this child in my heart could qualify for it,

for both of them exist for a divine plan,

with one purpose in heart---to explore it.


There is no Truth beyond that one of heart

that's why I allow it to always guide me.

Am I only dreaming, but can't walk apart

from someone else in my shadow beside me.

      This is a very interesting poem that contains lots to think about. It's the sort of poem that I like to read multiple times. Thanks for sharing it, Val.

      ThreeKeys---No, it was simply a metaphorical figure of speech. Namely, at some stage of my personal growth I was experiencing the world opposite from everything that they were presenting themselves to be. I was questioning people's values, their faith, their slogans, because despite their claims, everything was pointing at something else.

      Hence that part of my poem:..."it made me see the world somewhat upside down".

      Thank you for nice comment.

      A wonderful philosophical poem. Can I ask you are you the upside man in the Hanged Man in Tarot? Or did someone flip your world upside down (they were the Hanged Man)? I have met a few Hanged Men and they have left me puzzled to dismantling my bottom core values.
