The Anatomy of Emotion

Updated on March 3, 2013

When I am moved
Without sight
When I love
With feeling
When I accept risk
With faith
When I cry
Without experience
When I smile
With empathy
When I fail
With humility
When I believe
Without proof
When I am intentional
With passion
When I think
With meaning
When I ask
With inquisitiveness
When I succeed
With pride
When I see
With a beating heart
I know
That I am alive
And that what I cannot see
And what I feel
Is the answer

      Thank you both vocalcoach and Nellieanna. It is very gratifying to me personally to receive praise such as you give so freely. I was thinking about the title for a while and this was what came from it.
