If Humans Become Insensate

Ah, My feelings and your feelings,
Under their weight we both are reeling,
Some sprout from the core of the heart,
Some are results of malicious thoughts.

If suddenly emotions stopped flowing,
Would human society be still glowing?
Would life be worth going through motions?
When we do not comprehend affection.

Dead people buried beneath in graveyards,
Living dead will be roaming in courtyards
Emotions are the centers behind inspiration,
What’s life, if you can’t feel love’s vibration

Bards will disappear from this earth,
Bereft of emotions, will poems take birth?
No jubiliation at birth,no tears at death,
Is life worth sans melancholy or mirth?

Emotions prompt us to feel empathy,
Lest, we will be zombies full of apathy,
Nothing will be left to handover our legacy,
When we loose our human identity.
