Poem -

O' human heart!

O' human heart!

O' heart, I wonder how 
you can store
so many different 
emotions of ours
in just thy four puny 
chambers
while pumping away the 
liquid of life
O' heart in you we 
discover love
but side by side you can 
harbour hate
In you we find the 
emotion of happiness
but side by side you 
simmer rage!
When you cease to beat 
many plans you thwart
May God protect the 
young human heart.
And while some O' heart 
you hold dear
some make you skip a 
beat in fear!
O' heart but we find in 
you as well
the vile emotion of 
jealousy
Such a potpourri of 
emotions in you dwell
Help filter out any wrong 
ones for me!
A mere four chambers 
indeed, but spacious are 
they
Invite therein 
whomsoever in the 
world you may
But in the end forget not 
to reserve
atleast a single chamber 
for its Creator, to 
preserve
The creator of hearts
More than that deserves.

Lovely rhythm and flow throughout, apt for the subject of the heart. I admire how you include so many emotions, mirroring the dualities of light and darkness in its fickle struggle.

Hi S!  How fickle our hearts can be indeed!  We must be careful how we allow our heart to beat and for what causes!  I like both the positive and negative ways our hearts are explained to lead our thoughts.   The best way to protect our heart is to listen to the spirit of God and allow Him to guide our heart's will.  For the human heart is the motivation for all we do....I love the theme!  It is so good to see you back writing on Cosmo....Great work!  xo ;)

My warmest thanxx for your great thoughts on this, I couldn't agree more to your pearls of wisdom. We should always listen to God before listening to our mortal hearts for only He can guide to lasting and real happiness. Take care.

Hi S. zaynab,

In the chambers of my lifeline heart
Flows the blood that made my lifetime start
Each day it pumps the sustenance
That is the core of my humble existence

.
But also on each chambers wall
Are the scars from many of my pitfalls
Love, hate, happiness, rage
Now are there for God to gage

.
So when it's time for me to rise
I hope that He is well apprised
That in the center of my thankful Soul
It is Him that I do e'er extoll

Peace and Love,
Larry xxx
