The Heart

A heart is a convenient thing
as it is both indication
if one is live or dead
but also connects love
to one’s reason to live.

A heart feels what
the mind imagines.
Sing-song, smiles and reminisce,
deepening loving wishes and
improving happiness.

The heart still beats
as the mind is dreaming
through tears, screams or smiles
all to be forgotten
yet revealed in the morning’s attitude.

The organ itself
beats the red blood
that, from a doctor’s perspective
is proof of life sustained
but is that life worth living?

The heart becomes hurt
life becomes unworth living.
Depression sets in
masking any happiness
denying life worth living.

When life is not worthy
the heart beats slowly
and there are no dreams
only nightmares
and no imagination.

The heart is truly
not just an organ.
The heart is emotion,
creating life’s reasons
to make life worth living.
