Long Live Heart!
Our small heart inside a cute bony cage
Well protected from a minute scratch
Keeps on beating continuously
Day and night
For keeping us alive.
Even falling from a height
Cannot damage it one easily
So deep inside us with well
Fitted Protected walls.
But words just thrown
In air like an arrow
Which can pierce one heart
Thoughts are enough to wound it and kill it.
Outside forces cannot attack it
But inside thoughts are sufficient
To attack it silently.
One who is in coma is alive
due to heart beats.
Its only Love...
Love for Self
Love from others
Love for others
Keep it Alive!
Long Live Heart!
