This poem was written for A Prompt Each Day, a daily dose of inspiration. For today’s prompt – we were given ten words to inspire our writing (see below). I usually try my best to use most of them. Today I was able to use seven. I hope you like what I came up with.
Trust not – what your heart desires
Nor thoughts you’re afraid to speak
Judge not others – for it requires
More than a careless peek.
Light the way that others tread
But not with fire and flame
For hearts shall wilt in fiery heat
But starlight guides the same.
Simple truths cannot be forced
Strange hearts refuse to see
But live a true and honest life
And the view shall set them free.
“Innocent” looks can burn real deep
More than your words can say
Consider what your actions reap
Your heart they do portray.
Write of love upon your days
In every word and deed
To grow a thriving field of flowers
You only have to plant a seed.
