April 11, 2010 - Sevenfold




Sevenfold

What you do comes back to you
I hear it's sevenfold
Whether it's good or bad
The story is age old

So often you don't think about
How someone feels for you
You never give a second thought
As you break their heart in two

So many of us hit the door
With wings upon our feet
Never giving a second look
At the pain we leave

It may never cross your mind
That all they think about is you
But one day you may find yourself
Hurting like they do

If you leave a trail of broken hearts
Lying in a row
Perhaps one day you'll find yourself
Reaping what you sow

Don't ever treat hearts carelessly
Leaving hurt that burns a trail
Or you may find the one who pays you back
Does it oh so well

A painful truth...that I certainly can identify with...God help me if I am ever responsible for this kind of pain.

The Math of Life..
What goes around,will come around..
it is true with us individually as well as a whole.. it's what connects us to all and all to us..
Your poetry approaches our life lessons in the most personal and honest way.. it's like the guidance that is there but we don't always hear.. what a wonderful way, everyday to have this opportunity to come here connect with your gifts, and also go within.. That what Art is meant to be.. So thank-you Neva for these gifts you share!

Wow! Loved the last stanza!

Don't ever treat hearts carelessly
Leaving hurt that burns a trail
Or you may find the one who pays you back
Does it oh so well
