Wisely, O Gentle Heart

From the day the infant opens his eyes to the world
He starts to know what life is;
As the infant becomes a child, a man
Sometimes he is overwhelmed by what he sees.
Much of pain and some joy, and
Too much of confusion and doubts
He has to live through, fighting a lonely battle
Surrounded by many a smiling, jeering faces.
His gentle heart becomes timid
And, afraid to love again
He goes into a shell....
Wisely, O Gentle Heart,
Choose what you wish to keep,
For all are not the same;
The ones that hurt you are best forgotten.
Wisely, O Gentle Heart,
Try to love again.

This is a good one. 'Try to love again' comes out of belief in goodness of people because a few experiences should not stop us from giving and receiving love and happiness. Good thought, well expressed, Ayesha.
