X-ray Your Heart
When telling your history, start at the start
the doctor with clipboard will x-ray your heart
under the surface--there lie the facts hid
cloaked by the ego, but fertile with id.
And what did you think were the causes thereof?
In what measures mingled the fear and the love?
Can you balance the limp with a crutch or a cane--
can you bear with the damned and not mind the insane?
The soul walks a highway 'twixt heaven and hell
the sign posts exclusively show where men fell
but deep in the spirit one augury says
descendent of Adam, lift up your head.
