OPEN YOUR HEART

AND SEE WHAT LOVE BRINGS

By Josie Whitehead

Open Your Heart

Open your eyes and let in the sunshine;

     Open your ears and hear the birds sing.

Open your mind and let in the knowledge;

     Open your heart and see what love brings.

 

Open yourself to the world that surrounds you.

     Prepare for the good but also the bad.

Absorb what you see and that which you hear of:

     The lovely, the ugly, the happy and sad.

 

Grow up with strength, both in mind and in body,

       Accepting the honest, dismissing the cheat.

Prepare for the future that stretches before you:

       Bestow mercy and kindness on all whom you meet.

What does 'Open Your Heart' Mean?

1 : to talk in a very open and honest way about one's feelings He opened his heart (to her) and told her how he really felt. 2 : to begin to be generous and kind We should all open our hearts and do something to help those poor children.

In the above poem, I am saying that when you open your heart, you let in love.  I think that when you open your heart, you turn your back on anger and hatred and show love and kindness to others in your world - or perhaps those who are not directly in your world.  You could be giving money to a charity, for example, for the good of others.
