My heart and mind are at war
Shall I say it? Shall I be true?
Reason governs my every thought
Think it through, Think it through
A silence is to be interrupted
When words are deemed worthy
Yet the only sound my lips make
Is a ruckus of irrelevance
Reason guards my insecurity
My words circulating in my mind
Shall I say it? Shall I dare?
The moment has fled before I try
Second guessing is my nature
Overanalyzing every motion
By my logic, I can not be heard
Play it safe, Be invisible
I dream of reckless abandon.
Leading the thought revolution
Locking Reason in a tower far away
With Emotion guarding the iron door
Then shall I speak what I think?
Will I think before I speak?
Will you know me for my unfiltered thoughts
or for my absence of willful notions?
I tied my careful words to a chair
Out the door I went, heart in hand
My thoughts were fluid, pouring out
Soaring like a bird high above
I am honest. I am bold.
I spoke a poem and sung a song
I declared all that I’ve never said
I told stories and told them true
So say it all and say it true
Think it through, but not absolute
Be kind with your words
But never too sparse
Spill the words before they spill you
