Heart's Depth


Life seems settled
Like ocean on earth's crust
Storms generate from nowhere
Things change in a flash
Then a giant monument
Now leveled to the ground.

The tiny beating heart
Hides the ocean's depth
Of feelings, letting
Tides of tears sweep
The eyes of the shore
Again and again.

Strength of human tolerance
And the extent of patience
Are tested to the extreme
Hope they won't breakdown.

Life's complexities
Heart knows them all
It matters no more
If mind will mind them.

THE CHANCELLOR mused as he nibbled his pen
(Sure no Minister ever looked wiser),
And said, “I can summon a million of men
