Sick at Heart

For the world, you appear like a perennially sick person — someone always suffering from one or the other disease. But only you know where the real problem lies. It is not in that knee that doesn’t stop giving you trouble or that unsettling cough or the floaters in your eyes or your a little too much hair-fall. It lies in your heart.

All your physical ailments rise from the pain that your heart is suffering from. But no one recognises that as the real cause. “If only you were more careful…” is all you get.

But you know, better than any doctor, that the day your heart’s suffering stops, so will all your physical ailments. So will all your medicines. So will all the unnecessary trouble that your near and dear ones are going through for you. Then and only then, will you be completely fine. Then you will no longer be sick at heart.
