Open Heart

What is a heart?

Is just the physics of pumping blood?

Is it a chemical reaction that spurs your heart?

Or is it the emotions that empower you in a flood?

The heart full of compassion, love, passion,

And empathy, heralds horror for those who honor

Their loved ones, friends, and co-worker.

They fear their tender heart will be crushed by disillusion.

What do you inundate your heart with to keep it safe?

Do you pour cement in it to harden and protect

Your deliriously delicate heart from hurt?

Do you swamp it with frozen clumps of ice?

Or do you keep it open for more disappointment?

Fear of being wounded by others can be paralyzing,

For out of dread, you might drive those closest

To you away by building fortified walls around your heart.

Yes, hope and trust in others CAN be painful,

But do you retreat and hide?

Or do you expose your compassionate heart

To ensnare others in your warmth?

The decision is yours, of course,

But don’t miss out on life’s pleasure Just because a few experiences were sour!

Buried in Ice

Drowning under a sheet of ice,

Flaying, swimming endlessly trying vainly

To raise our head above the rise of the watery

Sepulcher that’s more somber than any bleak cave.

The sinuous water caresses and spontaneously

Freezes as it embraces our slumberous weight into its

Stygian obscurity driving fear into our heavy hearts.

Propelling our entrenched sense of ‘fight or flight’ not to be flighty!

Our terror of being buried alive on land or sea

Is an apologue for the actions we take to embed

Our confusion in unraveling the social behaviored sea

Corresponding to a multicultural divide is likened

To attempting to surmount Everest’s easiest route

To a summit that is the ‘ideal’ we have of success.

We worry so about success and measure it with the ‘norms’

And forget our actual achievements that we need to celebrate.

Brake the ice, punch through the barrier, surge above

The mud and disgust of a world buried in icy artifice,

That needs to compete and surpass one another, and be

Who you need to be so your uniqueness can shine.

The Fear! The Fear!!!!

Fire, fire, sinuous liar, spread fear like a liar.

Ceaselessly, undulating, weaving your web with a lyre

Blending, melding, fogging your thinking,

Embedding the conductor’s swaying, moving

Hands, mesmerizing in its bright bluish, red flame, burning.

Rise, raise your filaments into the sky in supplication

To the Creator, the all powerful, the giver and taker

Of life, pleading for a savior from the twister

That surrounds your vision with a blight of fear.

Paralysis sets in, and movement is bound in a lere.

Fear, fear of a teeny weeny virus is worse

Than the fire bathing you in brine and ashe

That sizzles up your skin, sneaking, bubbling

Into scorched patches of bright stinky skin.

Emphasize the need to survive this pendemic

As surely as you empathize with your fellow man’s

Plight in their struggle to eradicate fear’s

Hold on your life and your actions.

Stear the fear into a sepulcher of death

And despair so its power lays fallow in a breath

That inhales life and hope for longevity and health.

Beseech your Creator for the will to live and breathe

In hope, optimism, compassion, and empathy for humanity.
