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 side you harbour hate
In you we find the emotion of happiness
but side 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
