Hearts Unknown

Deep within every being’s heart
Lies feelings only known to them
Motivating thoughts with actions,
How they view the greater world
Spirited anticipation, or in cold fear.

Heartfelt feelings become new actions
Ways they treat themselves and others
Does compassion or angst take hold?
Engendering harmony or antagonism,
Admiring best or imagining the worst.

With their eyes upon the world
Watching carefully what exists
Daily scrutinizing you and me
Hearts determine their world view,
From feelings buried so deep within.

Approach to world, fear or optimism,
To people, warm feelings or trepidation,
Determined in ways only known to them
From lingering feelings in hearts unknown.
