Aren't emotions such a wonderful thing?
I so love the feelings that love can bring,
What good is a heart if it cannot sing?
What good is a soul without its voice?
You can't enjoy life if you can't rejoice,
I would choose 'to feel' if given the choice.
Today I felt such a tide of emotion
Wash over me; such a positive potion,
For one can't surf on a waveless ocean.
Food's not delicious if it has no taste,
Good wine is not savored if drunk in haste,
Life without emotion would be a waste.
I'm grateful to feel all that which I feel,
Without emotion, life wouldn't seem real,
I want no heart of stone, nor nerves of steel.
I wish to appreciate all that I find,
With ears that hear, and eyes that aren't blind,
And I live to love with my heart, soul and mind.
