    I held my heart in a locked chest
    Covered by layers of reservations
    And distrust awaitng the one who
    Will possess the one and only key;

    My heart speaks to me everyday
    Telling me the words to write and
    The thoughts to record so that the
    Key holder will have a pathway home;

    My heart no longer cries from the pain
    Of mis aligned trust and hollow point
    Dreams tearing down the walls of truth
    With veils of cruel intentions and dismay;

    I visited my heart today as it rested in
    A locked chest only to discover that the
    Place in which I left it was empty and
    The chest laid on the floor in many pieces;

    I looked to and fro for my heart only to
    Find footprints laid gently in the sand so
    I decided to follow in hopes to learn the
    Fate of God’s most precious gift to me;

    I walked forever to find my heart almost
    Quitting many times over but whenever I
    Sat to rest I found myself running in the
    Direction of the footprints before me;

    Through briars of history and thickets of
    Tomorrow through valleys of confusion
    And rivers of “no confidence” I journeyed
    Until I arrived at the only place strong enough
    To hold on to the deepest parts of me;

    I realized that the only one I could trust
    with The most delicate of my emotions
    could only Be found when I looked at life
    through the eyes of the one whom created me.
