Poetry In Emotion - Poem by Bernard Franklin

The state of mind that is happiness and joy,
is a healthy breeding ground,
for it lifts our spirits on wings of hope,
and keeps us safe and sound.

The most destructive emotion is hatred,
when we have feelings that we could kill,
for it infects our souls, with anger and rage,
and it’s benefits, appear to be nil.

The double-edged sword that is terror and fear,
can sometimes be good or be bad,
but it makes us beware of this dangerous world,
and for that, we’re eternally glad.

Without a doubt our strongest emotion,
is the love that we have for our kin,
for our hearts on our sleeves it’s protection,
from the devils most dangerous sin.

The saddest of feelings is sorrow,
when we lose somebody special in life,
there’s no protection at all from the loss of,
your kids or your mum or your wife.

The most godly emotion, compassion,
ensures the guilt in our conscience will go,
as we show that we care more for others,
our confidence in mankind will grow.

Some people just can’t show their feelings,
no matter how hard they might try,
they can’t show their love or their anger,
and find it hard just to laugh or to cry.

Some people can easily access,
their emotional deep inner self,
in expressing their feelings so freely,
they protect their emotional health.

The greatest of gifts that we can possess,
are the emotions that most of us feel,
for they ensure that we cope, one day at a time,
by helping our bodies to heal.
