Often I'm Told

Matthew Del Fiacco


Quite often I'm told
my heart is too bold,
my eyes are too bright,
my soul is not old
but if I was you,
and my joys were few,
I would not love life
the way that I do.
If my world was yours,
with only closed doors,
I'd find myself lost
upon foreign shores.
so you can be old
with hearts that aren’t bold
my eyes will stay bright
quite often I'm told
