The Human Heart

O' heart, I wonder how you can store
so many different emotions of ours
in just thy four puny chambers
while pumping away the liquid of life

O' heart in you we discover love
but side by side you harbour hate
In you we find the emotion of happiness
but side by side you harbour rage!

When you cease to beat many plans you thwart
May God protect the young human heart

And while some O' heart you hold dear
some make you skip a beat in fear!

O' heart but we find in you as well
the bad bad emotion of jealousy
Such a potpourri of emotions in you dwell
Help filter out any wrong ones for me!

A mere four chambers indeed but spacious are they
invite therein whomsoever in the world you may

But in the end forget not to reserve
atleast a single chamber for its Creator, to preserve

    We don't see a few of our organs but we can listen to the beats of our hearts, perhaps it's God who speaks in His own language.

    Human heart is the source of man’s thoughts and deeds.
    We should all therefore guard our hearts in order not to
    depart from God’s lovely commands. These sacred statutes
    are the only choice we should make to be worthy of God...
    A significant poem, dear Ma’am Zaynab...10++++

    A mere four chambers indeed but spacious are they
    invite therein whomsoever in the world you may
    But in the end forget not to reserve
    atleast a single chamber for its Creator, to preserve..even when we are in love, forget not to give a place for the creator...... a very good poem dear poetess. tony

    I don't like this site, I can't seem to find my comment? Hope it shows up latter?
    Well penned, the heart does not lie, it measures good and bad, therefore you can feel love or hate.
    Blessings to you. Excuse if you get two comments.

    Well penned, I agree our heart is like a thermometer, that can detect love or hate. We may lie to ourselves but our heart does lie. Many blessings to you.

    The heart has chamber of love and hate, happiness and rage, bravery and fear but we have to choose the bright side of these. A human heart should have love and sympathy to other. A beautiful poem nicely depicted and presented. Thank you for posting such intensive poem that I like most.

    Heart is the house of emotions and feelings like the universe where Satan is also active besides the super most power of God. A wonderful poem.

    You have cupped the gamut of emotions that rage in one's heart. The many seasons (a potpourri of emotions) of the heart you have reveled so well. You have summed the total person in the heart. You have put God's place there. Great write.

    Physiology and the psychology of a human heart have been explained very beautifully, emotions included. But the concluding lines are most extraordinary: But in the end forget not to reserve / atleast a single chamber for its Creator, to preserve.

    I clicked on this poem beause of the title THE HUMAN HEART. Our abilities to love and have friends - that defines our human nature. It's a personal declaration you make in this poem, revealing so much about your heart as you talk about many different ways the heart manifests itself in society. Scientists call human beings HOMO SAPIENS SAPIENS -.
    They had to broaden the category by doubling the sapiens because animals are observed using tools and being clever. But we humans still have wisdom and our felings to make us unique

    Hi Daniel thanx for an interesting reply, yes humans are a very distinct creature indeed and i like how u stress that our ways of love and hearts make us human as opposed to inhuman. Cheers.
