First, By Heart


i explore, first, with my heart

convinced that it can divine what is true

secondly, my gut

certain that it will know what is unseen and protect me

funny that they’ve been wrong so many times

yet, still, i listen closely

for their final words

my spirit…that, i’ll ignore

because i prefer that it go untouched

unsoiled by the goings on of my conscience

though it beckons and signals

i turn away

so that at least one part of me

will remain pure

ruined not by the filth of this world
