The human heart/ a poem

Updated on January 30, 2012

The human heart


The human heart is a river filled with secrets and lies. A place where lines are crossed and rules aren’t applied.

The human heart is filled with lust and greed. Consumed by love and hate, conquered by pleasure and need.

The human heart can survive storms and rain. It can heal from hurt and sorrow, but it can break from desperation and pain.

The human heart is filled with quiet dreams, and nothing within its boundaries is ever what they seem.

The human heart imagines that it can fly. No task is ever to daunting for the human heart to try.

The human heart clings to hope like a candle against the night, it steps from the shadow of darkness like a moth drawn to light.

The human heart so full of life and emotion. A strange, wonderful gift, a sign of God’s love and devotion.
