The Heart of the Matter – A Poem for Reflection

This week a reflective poem I wrote three years ago.

The Heart of the Matter

Is the heart of the matter

the question at hand

or the substance of the discussion

the topic of the moment?

Is the heart of the matter

the emotional underpinning

we fear to let surface

to hide our true face

or admit the depths of feelings

polite conversation

fails to utter.

      • “I never know which poem people will like or think is good”

        That’s why I just write everything that comes from my spirit, head, and heart, I never know either. When I write for myself, other people tend to enjoy my poems more. I guess the more personal you get, the more people will like them.
