Fireworks of the Heart
Surprisingly enchanting, captivating, mesmerizing
Sparkling and shining, vibrantly alive
They can take more than our breath away
So much more than mere fireworks in the sky
They can capture and own us
Fight us and even destroy us
More than mere fireworks in the sky
Blazing flames in our hearts
But... just like fireworks
They appear and disappear
They are called Emotions
Sometimes life giving
sometimes life stopping
Nothing more intense and glorious
and yet more deceiving and betraying
Nothing feels more real and yet is more unreal
Nothing can tell the truth like emotions
and yet nothing can tell lies like emotions
From liking to despising
from loving to hating
In the same heart and in the same lifetime -
in the blink of an eye
Do they belong to us or do we belong to them?
- Remember and reflect on an occasion when you felt some explosive emotions in your heart. How did you feel exactly and how long did they last? How did you feel afterwards? Some emotions leave you feeling wonderful and some leave you feeling awful.
- Learn to recognize where your emotions originate. Are they really telling the truth?
- No matter how great and loud your emotions feel in you heart, they are only temporary. Whether they are enjoyable or painful, just like fireworks they are fleeting. Love is not, be careful not to judge or measure love by your emotions.
