NK (1981 / Nakuru, Kenya)

Our Hearts

I am lying alone, thinking
Sleep as usual has rebelled
Refusing to do what it ought

What time it is am not sure
I guess it’s long past midnight

I am wondering
What really control our hearts?
Is it the mind, always sceptical
Is it the emotions, always unpredictable
Is it faith, always rebuking
Is it love, always intoxicating
Is it advice, always unwanted
Is it rage, always blinding
Maybe it is experience
Being the best teacher
Wait a minute, can it be the body
Our uncultured component
Whose cravings are perpetual

I am wondering
But I need not
For I know
Mine heart is controlled by fear
Yes, real raw fear
Of the unknown
