Conversations of the Heart

Spread the love

Open your heart — how do you feel?
World outside lacks charm and appeal
Was there logic or was there reason?
We bloom throughout year and season
Though earth’s dry of esteem and pride
We need not run — we need not hide

Conscious of sweeping woe and blame;
Conscious of warmth which is maimed.
Much we resist derision and scorn
Tread upon life’s pricks and thorn
Conversations lack wisdom and thought
Are we conscious of doing all we ought?

Open your mind — how do you feel?
Wounds with time can fade and heal
We shall scour all past and latent tears
We shall empty our heart of all its fears
The life we live is complex for words;
But not one moment goes unheard.

Conscious of feeling lone and betrayed;
Conscious of hurting the one we played.
Much we resist temptation and brawn
To a darker side sometimes are drawn
Conversations lack wisdom and thought
Are we conscious of doing all we ought?

Open your eyes — what do you see?
The birds above fly lone and free
Have you faith or have you doubt?
We’ll strive to become stalwart and stout
Though earth is dry of esteem and pride
We need not run — we need not hide

    “We shall empty our heart of all its fears
    The life we live is complex for words;
    But not one moment goes unheard.”

    What a pleaasure to read this poem Its rhyme is a bonus! The narrative voice encourages, forgives and is altogether compelling.

    (Oh! Thank you again again for your close reading of Sherry and my chat!)

        Great poem. I agree that our conversations lack depth and wisdom. It is all superficial and we should become more conscious.

    So many layers to this beautiful poem, Sanaa. The levels of consciousness work so intricately with the senses, some of which you have fine tuned, here, today.

    Conversations lack wisdom and thought
    Are we conscious of doing all we ought?
