Seniments - Poem by Hemendra Singh Deopa

Sentiments that enlighten a human soul.
To know who and what to be cared.
Sometimes hugely to provide
The sense of being humane.
Sentiments also often happen to be the root cause of the pain,
For the tender heart.
When the world playing many games.
One who doesn't keep with the pace,
Often hurt and teardrops roll accompanied with the pain.
But the sentiments for the true shall clean and move an apathetic heart.
As trees and their leaves gets cleansed in the rain.
Sentiments must be protected from demolishing rationality of your brain.
Because by and large the world wouldn't care tenderness of your heart,
in the name of the game that is life.
Sentiments are the guide,
that will take you to the path of understanding and reasoning good and the bad.
Ignorance as it sounds is surely dark and dreary.
Therefore sentiments of sorrow shouldn't let you walk towards the dark.
As enlightenment is the state of mind for the wise and for the sane.
How every now and then we cry in the rain to hide the tears.
How in dark we swallow the guilt of hurting someone.
As long as your sentiment keep knocking at the closed door of your heart.
It makes sense, for that only reflect the good side of your heart.
Even if you can't hide your emotions.
Even if you can't hold the tears inside,
Should let them flow,
As this only shows how you will grow,
in the light of knowing the unknown,
in the light of not to be insane.
For, sentiments show how you possess a beautiful heart.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sentiments are often regarded in our society a sign of weakness, however deep down we all know that sentiments do not make us weak but they make us more humane and provide the understanding of basic requirements to keep the humanity intact in the our hearts. It is just a moment of rage or wrath probably that subdues the tender emotions in most of the human. I happen to write this because I went through the newspaper, how ironic is that and how disheartening also that to read the newspaper becomes a task and eventually that lets down the belief in how we all felt at one point of time, mostly as kids that the world is wonderful perhaps. But looking at the brighter side, if only each of us keeps the faith in his own believes and keeps in touch with his more humane side, people can live with peace.
