The Heart Knows

The heart knows what eyes can’t see

Or maybe it’s the whole body

Warning that something’s off

Making you feel uneasy

.

Truth takes its time to appear

Detained by well-dressed lies

Still, the heart sniffs out trouble

But sight demands a why

.

That uneasiness in the mind

You can’t quite put fingers on

Gut instincts, they call it

Try to dismiss it–can’t move on

.

Not until truth breaks free

Uniting inner knowing with proof

Masks fall, real faces seen

Confirming what the heart already knew
