A Broken Heart - Poem by Blessing Anastasia Abaka

A cheerful heart, what happen to it?
Does it break like a glass or does it cut off like a tree,
Does it smell like a rotten egg or does it fall like the snow.

A broken heart it is!
Does it sink like the droplet of the rain,
Does a broken heart Explode?

Why isn't a cheerful heart be appreciated?
Why is there condemnation instead of praise
The humiliation and condemnation make me want to crey.

Why does everyone please themselves before others,
Why do they insult those who are cheerful.
To me they are wicked and selfish
They have eaten up their emotion of love.

    Glassy Hearts... broken by stony hearts. Hearts that do not know the delicacy of human emotion. We hope the glassy hearts do not fall in the web of stony hearts, innocently. Nice poem Ana (Report) Reply

    Because success need no appreciation. The successful ideas are already on the high. The broken heart need healing and it is more human to have sympathy for them. Cheerful hearts have many to accompany but broken are alone and in danger of worse condition. That is why I feel. We do not condemn cheerful hearts actually the broken heart is discussed more.

    A nice poem though and an interesting question too.

    A cheerful heart can be a brokwn heart at the same time.
    A broken heart is a sad heart without cheer (Report) Reply
