This is the heart that has managed to remain a mystery for so many and over time; no scholar or a well-established researcher has managed to catch upon its essence or its quintessence for that matter. Many have tried and failed unable to reach the depth of a woman’s heart. It is a beautiful mystery that keeps us all enthralled and fascinated. It is a heart that, despite its depth and mystification, has spread love and kindness to the tenants of this world. It is also the heart that has taught us to love and beloved in return.
Have you ever thought how the world would be and look like if it was just inhabited only by Adam or that many Adams were multiplied somehow and filled the face of the earth?
Yeah! You got that right; it will be this cold place. As cold as the tomb haunted by ghost feelings of love, joy and other emotions. One shudders just thinking of it.
Hey, I am not denying the fact that the other section of the human species’ possession of the qualities of sensibility but only pinpointing that this sensibility is usually dormant or is stifled deep down and that women are the ones who activate these dormant emotions and feelings. Thus I am not ignoring the fact that a man owns a heart too, but a man’s heart needs a partner heart that can teach him to love, feel and experience a number of emotions. Consciously or unconsciously a man’s heart is out and about in search of a heart partner that will be able to activate all the pent-up emotions he has buried deep down so masterfully. On the other hand a woman’s heart is filled with a sea of compassion, sympathy, love, kindness and gentleness and she can’t bury these feeling down for they are vast and as such she extends it to everyone around. The creator, in his magnificent ability has thought and planned perfectly on balancing the equilibrium of the human race by installing both sets of characteristics (the soft and the tough) in his work of arts. So the man cruises through life displaying machismo and exaggerated sense of masculinity which by the way emphasizes behaviors that are conventionally considered as male qualities such as strength, courage, stamina, and last but not least lack of emotional response and the world expects nothing less from him. But the woman with her soft heart and nature fills in what the man lacks. She teaches love and patience to the world of cynics. Shimmering with softness and kindness a woman makes this world a better place to live in. And in coming together both genders complement each other’s shortcomings, I don’t think it was ever in the intention of the creator to prefer or top one over the other.
Have you ever wondered how the world would function without the existence of love and kindness? Do you think there will even be a world to talk about in the first place? It is love that has tolerated over all the ugliness of life and the crimes of wicked intentions. So what can spring love better than a woman’s heart? Love has taught us to forgive each other and accept each other and we all know that sentiments of mercy are in unison with a woman’s heart. Can a man declare that he is crazy in love without having found a woman that makes me to react as such, can he do all these things a man in love does without a woman’s heart provoking such actions from him?
“No woman no cry” once sang Bob Marley and a lot of people have their own version of translation for this particular song. Although some have chosen to believe that women are the cause of every pain and misery in life thus by deduction there would have not been the word cry if women were not created at all; thus no woman no cry, I ,however, have chosen to translate this song in my own terms of understanding and frame of mind. But before I proceed with my reasoning I want to challenge the above mentioned version of translation of this particular song. For argument sake, let’s just say that women are responsible for all the miseries in life and that’s what he meant by no woman no cry- if there were no woman there will be no crying of any form. But haven’t we ever cried out of joy and happiness in life for reasons that have nothing to do with a woman or women? I have seen a man crying a river after returning to his hometown after 20 years in exile. He bow A woman’s heartdown and kissed the land he loves so much and dearly as tears of joy and other unidentified emotions took over him. I have seen a man shedding tears on a death of a family, brother or father. So women can’t possibly be the cause of every crying sound in life. We should know that sometimes the soul has this intriguing habit of wallowing on its own will and accord and this in turn fills the heart with sadness so we usually shed few tears of self-pitying and no woman is to be blamed for this. This is to say that all of us shed tears now and then for causes that have nothing to do with women. And as so I have this feeling that Marley was trying to narrate the sensitivity and sensibility of a woman to the world; that the world and its tenants wouldn’t get in touch with their pent-up emotions that are deep down if it wasn’t for the women down through time who have taught us to express our emotions and feelings. Not because they are the cause of every misery in life but because they have made us a better citizen of this life unlike those robots and machines that can’t experience any form of emotions or unable to express feelings. Thus a woman is the savior that has taught us to get in touch with the sensitivity within us.
I am not trying to pain a woman as a saint or holier-than-thou but we all know deep down that this is true and we have witnessed her kind heart starting from our mothers. Remember she cried her eyes out when you were hurt and has suffered as much when you were in pain? She has prayed and demanded that she suffers on your behalf. She has prayed that the heavens punish her instead. How about the times she saw a motherless child crying on the streets, didn’t she break into tears till she was beyond consolation? Her heart reaches out for anyone in distress. It is a kind and vulnerable heart that welcomes everyone into its chambers, and trust me the world has come to be a better place to live in because of it. It has cured and soothed a lot of hearts. It has endured everything but still has managed to love and care again.
A woman’s heart is most beautiful when it caught amidst a love affair. Then it feeds love and receives love- that’s probably the only time it receives back love from the other end for her heart always extends love and kindness unconditionally. This heart loves abundantly with no holding back. When this heart loves it loves genuinely and wholly, it feeds and waters pure love. Haven’t you heard about the healing power of a woman’s heart? Her love can heal and mend a broken heart. And when she loves, she loves with all her whole heart holding nothing back. She opens her heart and feeds her pure love. Love comes naturally for her and that’s why she feels it deeper than the man. The love punch gets straight to her head and her whole being, she looks out of the window and admire the sight before her. Suddenly the sky seems cloudless, the stars bigger and brighter and that the heavenly bodies are smiling down at her. She smiles a lot and feeds love to everyone around. When she is really in love we all feel the love, the atmosphere is filled with love and we all can sense it in the air. It is also a courageous heart; one that never backs down. I have seen women raising up from ashes to become somebody, those woman who have built a great name for themselves, those women who were told they don’t have what it takes to climb the ladder of success but who have proven the world wrong.
I have heard a lot of men confessing out laud about their inability to reach the depth of a woman’s heart. The routine observation by most men is that “ wow, you can never find her heart”. But her heart is there and it was never lost to be found, it is just that no one can reach its depth. We can find a woman’s heart, it is its depth that we can’t find and I think this very reason should make a woman’s heart more beautiful and fascinating. But by nature, we, human beings have the tendency to doubt what we can’t fully understand or grasp and that’s why most men talk negatively when the topic of their discussion involves a women’s heart. However, we can talk about it and many books and scholars also could try discussing it but we can never measure its depth nor can we guess its extent. We all know that it will remain to be a mystery; a beautiful mystery.
