“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

Heart Thief

Who was there to rearrange

The walls? and I’ve

Lost all that I meant to gain

What mattered most has

Turned away and struck again

And I’m left empty-handed and ashamed

Who was there?

Wasted hours

Wasting, holding

I am strung on

Borrowed heartstrings

Not that they gave but

Give so freely

Who was there to take

Their offerings?

What’s a vulture to the man

Who doesn’t struggle? he

Takes away the fun in it

What caused the hunger?

Many beat outside the chest

For what’s inside it

Showing marks on east and west

The wind did it

Wasted hours

Wasting, holding

I am strung on

Borrowed heartstrings

Not that they gave but

Give so freely

Who was there to take

Their offerings?

I know it’s a simple thing

To give up yourself

For somebody else’s dream

But you has wanted

Leaving every thought you have

Everything you wish for

And placing them in stranger’s heads

And on their shoulders?
