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
