The Heavy Heart

Surrounded by life’s marketplace,
Something to want most everyplace
Not happy with my lot in  life,
Nor content  to have no strife;

Enveloped by some nemesis,
Enjoined by troubles or a wish
Encumbered by mean jealousies
Or burdened with sad memories

My mind calls me to past decisions
To revisit,  make revisions
I yearn for what  I can’t explain,
I seek affection for life’s pain  

The heavy heart waits, unfulfilled.
Finds nothing here its cry make stilled
For, souls can’t rest until at home,
Beyond this life, with God alone.
