A HEART OF FEATHERS By Jasen Sousa

A HEART OF FEATHERS


Anger, dishonesty, resentment,
emotions that carry serious weight.
Keeping these emotions in your heart
will never allow you to be great.

When you walk your feet will drag on concrete,
ankles will bruise and swell.
Heaven is a place you will never visit,
an entire eternity roaming in Hell.

The only way is through apologies,
the ability to forgive.
Then and only then,
will you begin to live.

I cleansed my soul
through the material I wrote.
Let the God’s rip the heart out of my chest
and drop it off a cliff to test and see if it will float,

or if it will drop like a rock
into fire and smoke.
Let us see whose heart is filled with hate,
and whose heart is filled with hope.

A heart made
out of gold
is a heart
that is too heavy to hold.

A heart made
out of feathers
is only a heart
that could create these letters.
