An Unfinished Life
My silenced heart bears its core hidden from life
It longed to come forth, yet vanished from sight.
Choosing to live in the recoil from pain
Of what rips through the channels of destined love’s gain.
Is it ever known as true, with faith and sweetened might?
I have not known what lasting embrace is like.
Curling, I put hand on my heart to comfort and soothe
I can feel my breath; I want to lie and never move.
I feel the burn of an unfinished life.
And pray that I Love with an unblemished soul.
I pray to honor the unyielding call
That has given me Heart, Love, this chance, each moment and All.
