Heart of Gold

“Heart of Gold”

–Amy Engle


National Poetry Writing Month 2017 Poem #10


They see his skills, his looks,

And judge him on that.

But I look deeper and watch

How he treats those around him.

Unkind critics call him a fake.

I don’t believe a word of it.

His deeds speak plainly of his

Love for all the people he meets.


Encouraging words inspire me

To be the best person I can be.

I shall always admire him.
