Purity Of A Golden Heart


I don't suspect the purity of gold
which makes my heart but lastly
a heart is made up of no gold
but of bundle of muscles
nerves, veins, emotions
et cetera,
et cetera.

Heart is heart and gold is gold.
What I come to know lastly
seems you knew from the beginning!
One is not worth exchanging for other.
Want gold you need not to
stop for a heart
but to go ahead for pure gold.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
