Heart Of Gold
Within the depths and heart of me,
lay a broken down woman who yearned to be free.
Craving a love that would hurt me never,
seeking a soul that would bind to mine forever.
Through time my need became immense,
difficult to suppress or at times make sense.
Emotions I'd buried so long ago,
would threaten to leave me vulnerable as I show.
What lies at my core politely seeping through my being,
as at long last the light I am seeing.
Clear as day for the first time I witnessed,
that no more was my heart suppressed.
No boundries to love do I now hold,
as I abandon all of those lies I was told.
Old enough to know that what I feel is right,
proud of myself for seeing the light.
Blinded once by the pain,
but not anymore as I undo this rein.
That hurt used in an attempt to control me,
but I now know it's not the way it has to be.
So I take charge of my own destiny and fate,
realising in my heart that it's not too late.
To move on from the past as my future I mould,
nurturing this mended lady and my HEART OF GOLD!!
