A part of my heart pains,
the pain is like that of a bird left in a cage facing the open sky.
A part of my heart pains when true love doesn’t last,
when parting lovers don’t get to say goodbyes.
A part of my heart pains when religion is no longer a choice,
when we chose Gods to separate mankind.
A part of my heart pains when friends can no longer see eye-to-eye,
when friendships erodes and opinions create divide.
A part of my heart pains, when I see us mock those below us in life,
when our vanity makes us less human, when below empathy we slide.
A part of my heart pains when parents cut corners to feed their child,
when a child’s dream can’t be fulfilled and parents are forced to lie.
A part of my heart pains when we accept that which we never meant to abide,
when we say things with concern but unconcerned we are, deep inside.
A part of my heart pains and I really don’t know why.
Someone once told me, This heart is filled with emotions infinite
and the world kills them all , one at a time.
Maybe humanity is the part of my heart that pains,
maybe this is the part that hasn’t yet died.
