More Of You Less Of Me

Loving more to tell you the truth,
You know in your heart what you must do,
Disipline yourself to see,
The intent of your heart, because action proceeds,
Love counteracts fear,  it speaks the truth,
Your heart pounds at the sound of what you should do,
It's usually never what you thought, sometimes feelings step aside,
Your heart steps up to plate, fear no longer hides,
It wages war with our feelings, fear keeps in captivity,
It won't come out into the light because in the dark it breeds,
Supressing your heart, adding one fear onto another,
So you will shut your mouth, and your heart altogether,
To make you feel less, to shut out the love,
To make you forget, you are more than enough,
The love you give is never a waste,
Even if some people don't see it that way,
Don't hold back your heart, don't shrink n hide,
God will honor the intent and open your eyes.
