Secret Heart

                                      Eyes and Umbrellas ~ Philip Brent Harris


Where do you think you will find your secret heart,
A heart that speaks to the secret heart of the world?
What pushes us away from the center, keeps us apart?
What fear, hatred bigots us, around our heart curled?

Are we somehow kept too busy to even take one look,
to find that secret place inside us, the sheltered nook.
And if we don’t find our heart, will we disappear, die?
Would we be aware, might we ask the question why?

Have we waited so long the world’s heart died as well?
Have we left it too long, so nothing to be done or said?
Look around at all of our strife and the story it does tell.
Will we locate our secret heart, after the patient’s dead?


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
