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
