The noble heart knows,
To stand up for what he believes in,
And is not afraid to fall defending it.
The brave heart knows,
The world is all,
And his for the taking,
But does not belong to him.
The giving heart knows,
That all he needs isn’t given,
But all he gives is needed.
The contented heart knows,
That family isn’t always who he’s born with,
But it is whom he lives, loves and shares with.
The honest heart knows,
To speak with reason, command and truth,
And the world becomes his ear,
But he knows to listen with sincerity and without judgment,
And his world becomes clear.
The keen heart knows,
To chase everything he dreams,
For life was made for dreamers,
But he takes the moments as they come,
Relishing every fleeting second,
And knows that destiny is the journey.
The careful heart knows,
To be aware of his enemies,
Giving them none of his time,
He knows that the greatest is regret,
A greater foe than fear himself,
For it persists.
The sage heart knows,
Youth is a gift that is wasted on regret,
And wisdom is a treasure that is wasted on age.
The resolute heart knows,
A battle fought alone, is never a losing battle,
For the battle is only lost if he is,
In his own fear.
The scorned heart knows,
To welcome the pain and hurt he faces,
For he knows that his wounds,
Are merely tokens of wisdom.
The inspired heart knows,
That truth is a state of mind,
He believes he is stronger than his form,
And he is,
For the truth is what he makes it out to be.
The sincere heart knows,
Love is the only mystery,
That is best left unrevealed,
For it knows no definition,
It knows no judgment,
It knows no perfection-
But in itself is nothing short of.
The patient heart knows,
There is no one way,
To view the beauty of life,
He sees the world as it is-
All the beauty that’s left of,
And what it could be-
And shapes it out as his own.
