Lost (Inspirational Poem)

The heart’s open
The wound is bleeding
The mouth is dumb
The heart is seizing

People pour out their hearts
And vilely varying sins
In words of gold
Laid in pity
Received with pity

My case is Different
My heart is bleeding
My mouth is bitter
My head is heavy

I pour out my heart
In worthless words
Of parchment and ink
Laid in secrecy
Recent with distrust

The world is hateful
The family is loving
The friends are righteous
The enemy is me

My heart’s murky depths
Have I tried to know
It’s many secrets
Have I tried to understand
Efforts always futile

I try to be faithful
They try to understand
I’m lost to myself
I’m lost to the world
