The Human Heart Poem by s.zaynab kamoonpury

The Human Heart

Rating: 4.7

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

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

This is really a beautiful poetical and philosophical consideration about our heart! Yes dear poet: we live many and many emotions daily, and our heart must keep itself strong! Yes, yes: a place to our God must be reserved, when surely we feel the best emotion of all! Feeling this emotion surely only it makes well, very well to our heart which thanks us! Please accept a fraternal hug from Brazil!
