human heart


O! Heart, why are thy wicked?


Why is thy born evil?


Why is thy thought and imaginations sinful?



Is it because you are born out of the tree in the garden


And as tasted the ways and mysteries of the apple


Because everyone is your victim


You deceive, kill and destroy


You have been our life and our doom


Your parts are corny and stunned in nature


Darken in light and denying the truth of it


You brought to your bearer more pain and no gain


And worst of all you cant be known


Like they say, life does not forgive so as you
