Lee Harrison on Give me a country that cares (59 minutes ago)
Ghostly thoughts formed from the heart tricking the mind to act on its request.
With filial piety the mind must acquiesce.
The mind does rule the heart to beat,
By the proclivity for the mind to obsess for the longings of the bard’s vessel’s vein,
Seduced by its mistress, the heart does reign.
Oh, the heart, she is a sly coquet.
Flirt as she will, there cannot be a lawful marriag...

A woman cries for now she knows
Her love is unconditional
Weeping at the empty kitchen table
One, two, three in the morning
None are awake but her
Right hand reaches out to air
“There was no choice to make!”
Yet she always knew, in some way
Either too much to handle
Or not enough
But always cast aside
Anger will not manifest

Eyes that seek truth,
A heart that knows no bounds
A mind that eludes and intimidates
A soul that is and always was free
Determined and passionate
Emotional but strong
I can get through anything
Even when I don't want to
There are times when I do not know myself
These times are hard
Patience will show my path
I'm so grateful I was not alone
I'm still not al...

How are you?
What are you thinking about?
Why are you thinking that?
Where does your heart go?
Does your soul fly?
Can you see clearly?
Did it help?
What didn't help?
How is your soul?
How is your heart?
What do you think about?
How are you?

Keep finding bits and pieces of
Myself strewn across my mind
Only to be blown away again
And what little pieces I have left
Shake and shiver in fear.
Knowing the horizon has better days
I strive onward, searching
There will always be a place
Not a hole, but a safe space
In my heart
For you to rest your head awhile
And know that I will always love you.

When the morning's flight
lifts the darkened blind,
and slows the speed of time,
be ready in your heart and mind
with gratitude, as you drift
on a sweet and quiet river,
lined by silent watchers;
remember their gifts, and the jewels
of the givers,
For that light is sure to glow
fierce and steady in your memory -...

What is that glint
as the sod breaks and crumbles:
a sparkling hint
as I dig the dusty summer soil?
This old garden has gained lost treasures
of man, woman and child for centuries -
What lies uncovered?
Teased from the clod
I find a tiny glass heart and this ...

When you give someone your heart
They have it and that's just that
There's no feeling of loss or of something missing
Simply joy as you realised you had it to give
And gave it willingly, without doubt
Knowing it sits safe with the one you love
You have my heart

My heart beats fast for you
My heart aches for you
My heart glows warm whenever I think of you
It fills my brain and soul like a drug
The best drug of all

I went to an extraordinary exhibition last year called "Spirit of Anzac" which was touring all over Australia. It came closer than anything I've seen in capturing the daily experiences of those who fought, and died, in the First World War, and especially in trench warfare on the Western Front. I have tried to express something of that experience, as I understand it.

It didn't happen quickly,
Honestly, I didn't realize it was happening at all.
A few encounters here and there turned to seeing him every day
Turned to waking up to sleepy smiles and stolen kisses
And now I wouldn't want it any other way.
As time passes it gets harder and harder to rememeber how I felt before I met him.
It is harder each day to remember who I was then...

Oh how I crave to feel the touch of the ocean.
My skin longs to feel the mountain breeze.
This heart of mine seems insatiable when it comes to wandering,
What this world holds and where my place in it is.
I search for new in the old and for excitement in the familiar.
How wonderful it is that you eventually find what you are looking for.

Who am I suppose to be?
My mother tells me I must be strong, independent,
I must strive to make myself happy.
My dad says I must be smart, work hard,
I must dedicate my life to building a great one.
My heart says I must love others, care for others,
But what if that gets in the way of caring for myself?
My mind says to stay safe, to be cautious,
But this interferes with my ...

I never considered myself to be strong, before.
My heart, my mind, my body
Thought of as weak, before.
But I am no longer the girl I was before.
This heart has survived every wound, every attack.
This mind has overcome every anxiety, every doubt.
My soul, my character tested over and over and
I have failed and thrived only to fail again.
Yet here I stand.
I have p...

"I don't want revenge.
I just want to make you smile"
Sometimes the truth is, we are left alone.
There is no one to go to.
Just left on your own
inside the world that makes up the collision of your heart and mind.
Each day time passes, and still you could say to me: "Your heart is mine".
Folded down in sorrow. Tears that rain into my heart.
Never leaving my eyes, ...

My mom lives in my heart
Of my world she is a special part
Lots of care and unlimited love
Shes an angel from heaven above
She gives me food and drops me to school
In my life she sets all the rules
Even she scold and yells at me
In her eyes love is what i See
Sometimes i may cause you pain
But i know your darling I will remain
You will always be in my heart
