Poem: Unlock Your Heart

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Unlock Your Heart" by Kenyth Mogan

poem-unlock-your-heart

It’s easy to hide,
to lock your emotions out
instead of staring them in the face,
to be too scared to take a chance,
too fearful to be hurt.

There is a four leaf clover
with your soul embedded
waiting to be discovered,
to unlock those feelings
you buried long ago.

Let your feelings escape,
believe in the possibility of the unforeseen
allowing your love to bloom,
throw away those keys
letting your heart be free.

"Let My Love Open The Door" by Pete Townshend

Yes it is really difficult for some people to express their feelings but we should at least try. Very well composed and the idea is also excellent.

A very clever and an amazing poem. So many of us do not unlock their potential instead we should ...

Let your feelings escape,

believe in the possibility of the unforeseen

allowing your love to bloom,

throw away those keys

letting your heart be free.

Thank you, Lorna.

It is usually the second chance since one has been hurt before, but it is all about opening your heart and trying again.

Thanks for reading.

Beautifully expressed sentiments in your poem.

Sometimes it helps a lot, to speak up for ourselves.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem.

It's all about taking a chance or taking another chance on love. Your poem is touching and I love the last verse Brenda.

Tiyashi,

Thank you for reading my poem.

Yes..it is quite easy to bury one's feelings.

Tiyasha Maitra from Gurgaon on October 31, 2019:

Nice poem Brenda. It's true, we often bury certain feelings so deep down that maybe sometimes we ourselves forget about them.

This is a nice take on the idea of not keeping feelings buried.
