My heart is a golden helmet.
It warns me about future accidents
with other people.
My heart is a gracious belt.
It reaches out to fasten my enemies
and bring them closer to me.
My heart is a comb
that can reset my bad feelings.
My heart reflects my life
like a public mirror.
My children can follow my teaching
by looking into my heart.
