POEM OF THE DAY-BYJAMES PRITSKY

Feelings tell the truth, they never lie
Feelings tell the truth between you and I
But what if they hide, they don't come out
Then how will your feelings come about
Through signs, that's kind of crazy
That's like not working at it and being lazy
Through art, though picture would be grand
It doesn't paint a full picture to understand
Through words, though you say them proud
The may not come across as being loud
So how do you release how you feel?
To make sure that someone knows that it's real
You start at your stomach, where the butterflies roll
And that sends a message right to your soul.
From your soul, it moves through you blood
And it enters your heart like a flood.
From there, it sits in your heart, awaiting its fate
But you better release it soon, or it will be too late
So how do you let your feelings out? Look in your heart
It is there you will see that you should have looked there from the start.
