What is Heart?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

HEART—we all have one that some of us share

While others take a pass on the openness snare

Especially if it means they must FEEL to partake

At the HEART of each matter, bottom lines rarely fake



HEART—it’s for lions, both cowardly and strong

It’s the stuff driving athletes amidst competitive throng

They’re messy things, broken and mended each day

As humans react with emotion like there’s no other way


HEART—the separation between right and pure wrong

A natural order that precedes head thinkers thinking along

It is HEART anchoring passion like roots in a tree

Nurturing love inside humans, needed desperately


HEART—it’s to have and often to hold

It helps define quality-of-life, or so we’ve been told

So suppress your desire to just think things straight through

And instead FEEL with HEART and compassion, decisions anew
