What is inside a woman’s heart?

Take a peek inside a woman’s heart,

A cluster of emotions, God’s masterpiece of art.

It nurtures, cherishes and cares in love,

Nothing else does it place before or above.

Regard your mother and her affection,

For she will put your happiness before her own without any condition.

Have you seen inside your woman’s eyes?

Your attention is all she seeks; it is for you that she sighs.

Value your daughter the same way as you would your son,

Educate and empower her; she too can be a big gun,

For your adoration and applause, she will always love you,

As a daddy’s girl, she will make you proud which shall be her due.

Honour your sister equally as a brother,

Like you, she too came from the womb of your mother,

She may be more intelligent and competent,

Your appreciation, however, will become her strength.

These words are for smart men to contemplate,

Your regard for the women in your life shall truly make you great,

Take a peek inside a woman’s heart,

A cluster of emotions, God’s masterpiece of art.

    What is inside a woman’s heart?
    Blood, vessels, arteries etc., just like man’s heart. Recommend

    I know very little of poetry but after reading this I realised that my ignorance was not a handicap. You spelt it out so simply, so nicely that anyone reading it would be moved and impressed.Recommend

    Inside a woman´s heart is the eternal fountain of cosmic love…………and how awfully scared is the man to ever fall inside it and lose his demonic murderous nature!Recommend

    Even women don’t understand a fellow – woman. Its not easy understanding a woman’s mind ( which is a very wavering object ).
    I think this poem is cliched and romanticizes a woman. Please write something practical next time . Recommend

    Woman is most talked about but least understood.
    She gave birth to Mandela and Robin hood
    Gandhi was also her son, and so was Hitler
    She is only what her sons and daughters make her.

    There is a beautiful couplet;

    “Jaki rahi bhawna jaisi, Prabhu moorat dekhi tin taisi”
    ( we see God as per our feelings and sentiments)Recommend

    Woman’s heart? No, there is nothing special about it. Four chambers, blood being pumped, arteries, veins, etc. nothing different really.Recommend

    Nice, but they are not the same as they used to be, many talk and yell about equality, but they want men to follow them like their pets, and those who dont follow are labeled ‘ iss ka toa dimagh kharab hai’ :),

    then many have changed their priorities, our mother’s priorities used to be their husband / family not their jobs/ occupation. i have gone through the process of selecting a bride for marriage in last two-three years and in many cases i found that she and her family were giving me a ‘favour’!Recommend

    too didactic and not that poetic. Comes across as a PR piece for feminism.Recommend

    If men can do a job and take care of their families why can’t women do it. Some thing is wrong. Women are complaining they are getting rejected and men are complaining women treat them bed.

    No one can treat you like a pet unless you “agree” and act like a pet.Recommend

    @Insaan:

    i dont understand ur statement, men are busy in working day in and day out to provide bread for themselves and their families, by taking care of families i mean the whole bunch which includes parents and childrens, husbands, wives.

    And if women priorities turn to job/ occupation then we should folow the west culture i..e the pre nuptial agreement sort of contract marriages, where men and women only live together, and there should not be responsibility of the family only on the man, Humara dimagh nahi kharaab hai key saari zimaadaari hum lein and get nothing in return!!!!

    Regarding your statement on pets, at least you have aknowledged it that many women want men to be their pets, and yes i also agree that this is the fault of us men. But my friend use to say me before marriage do anything and after marriage make it count :)Recommend

    Where so people like you come off saying the west has destroyed their women? Unless you’re a woman living in the west, shush.
    I’m a Pakistani American woman living in the West as I have since birth and my life is by no means destroyed. I’m free to do as I please. I make every decision myself. I can marry who i want and when I want. I can work in whatever job I choose long as I succeed in working my way there. And I can live wherever I want. I’m HAPPY. How have I been “destroyed?” Recommend

    It is all about SEX.

    Women are treated like dirt in many places.

    This guy was asked to say few words about sex…..he just said ….Ladies and Gentlemen it gives me a great pleasure….Recommend

    @Stranger: Its not easy understanding a woman’s mind ( which is a very wavering object ).

    Nothing to do with understanding, you just saying women have hard time making up their mind. That is the reason why some men think when a woman says “no” she may mean “yes”.Recommend

    @Salahuddin Ahmad: “The west has destroyed their women and their life is a misery”

    You think keeping a woman in burqa and at home is a life of joy.
    In many Muslim countries a woman can’t even complain if she is raped. In countries like Pakistan she may even be convicted for getting raped (zina).
    Millions of Muslim women get their sensitive sexual organs cut to kill their sexual desire in order to keep them from doing it.

    West has given women a choice to do what ever she wants. Recommend

    Sex is an instinct like hunger and is an important part of a loving relationship between male and female. Recommend
