The most delicate matter there is..the matters of the hearts.

Heart Don’t Fail Me
Amiza Hazni Bt Mohd. Radzi

To be honest with you I had this title in mind for so many years already. My former university professor once mentioned the title of Diana Ross’s song, “Heart Don’t Fail Me.” The title was catchy then and it still is until this very moment. It kept appearing in my mind these few days and this definitely signaled something significant which I could not brush aside. Life has different meanings to different individual. As for me life is just great! I am not being cynical neither I am being boastful. Life is full of co-existence of many opposite concepts, ideas and things. Good and Evil, Happiness and Sadness, Success and Failure, Promises and Lies and Tears and Laughter co-exist peacefully in this world. I am not being a hopeless romantic. Please bear with me and let me clarify further. After each and every one of us had gone through a lot in our lives, it begins to make sense to us why certain things happened. At first we might wonder, “Why and how it could have happened?” Unfortunately not all questions have answers and worse if those who have the answers remained silent. The only thing left for us to do is to rely on our hearts because hearts do not lie not even to us.

Resilience is an inner strength that we have in us. We keep telling ourselves to stand up, walk slowly, faster a bit, run now and then fly every time after we fell. But deep inside us, a small voice in our heads which surely would have come from our hearts whispers to us how long can we stand this never ending occurrences of rise and fall? It goes back to the strength of our hearts or some might say our sanity. If we are hurt some of us might cry, some might fight back and some might just ignore the sinking feeling and move on. It solely depends on our hearts whether things will be alright eventually or things will get worse. Some of us seek help and comfort in others and listen to advice but after having listened to loved ones, closed friends or professionals, it usually brings us back to our own hearts. We just have to listen to our hearts.

Listening to our hearts is surely a risky business. What if we our hearts fail us again? We should have known better because through our personal experiences we have been hurt one time too many and we have no choice but to trust our instinct and listen to our hearts. Is it a risk or a chance we are referring to here? I would say we are taking chances. So why not just go ahead and take chances. I cannot guarantee we have nothing to lose but there are chances that are worth taking. Our hearts are the strongest organs in our bodies so they are surely strong enough to withstand any circumstances in our lives. So just pray silently and hope our hearts will not going to fail us.
