A Jeweled Box Of Sorrows

Deep within the bowels of the soul Is a jeweled box of sorrows timelessly old Disguised by its jeweled beauty few look inside Leaving tainted roots to fester as seeds coincide Silence provokes an introspection of one’s life The core of traumatic events rise through strife Resentment stands like a giant among the weeds Jealousy pokes at the heart while standing as reeds Look closely as the box begins to open and reveal Bearing the reflection of attitudes quietly sealed Face these roots without fear taking a hard look Kick them to the curb see what the enemy has took One may be able to fool those who are near Eventually they slip and a heart they will sear Guard the seat of the soul from those who profess Their steps are made of love yet their actions confess Caught up in flattery when adored are at their best Humility is the fruited movement in a flowing river crest Take time to look inward with an honest heart Never placing all your apples before Gods fruited cart Carole Cookie Arnold
