Stepping Stones

Tread carefully or you'll disturb the surface beneath which lies my soul,
Look for the path that says " I'm ok, i'm cool" along which you may stroll,
Beware of "great.. no problem.. that's fine" or else you'll really be in the mire,
For these words are like stones that give way 'neath your feet, tipping you into the fire
Read my heart, my face, not my lips, don't be fooled by a smiling face,
For your toe may catch a sticky patch, sending you flying through space,
To land at my feet where your lies become a blind fold that hides truth's way
For truth is a far better guide to my heart than those stones that can lead you astray
