    A conversation between two hearts




    Joy?! What is joy?



    It is that feeling

    When you start jumping

    Up and down?

    It is that feeling

    When you are beating

    As fast as you can!



    Aha... I know,

    But, that to me

    Is fear and terror

    When f16's are shelling

    Every house in town

    I start jumping

    Like a mad clown!

    Is this really joy?



    No... No

    Joy is that feeling

    When you are going

    To meet some dear one you love

    As if you're flying in the clouds

    Up above



    Aha... I know

    But this is to me

    So sad and painful

    For I can't stop the tears flooding down

    Looking at my father

    Behind the prison bars!

    Unable to touch him

    Or even kiss him goodbye!

    Is this really joy?



    No... No

    Joy is what you get

    When you really want

    Just to stop all time

    Wishing that

    The hand of the clock

    Never ticks, nor tocks

    Freezing that moment

    Forever and ever!



    Aha... I know

    But, this is to me

    Horror and beyond

    When soldiers come dashing

    Knocking at the door

    Crashing and smashing

    Mixing rice flour and oil

    Looking for my brother

    Who just turned thirteen

    Is this really joy?



    No... No

    Joy is so warm

    Like,

    When you're wrapped up

    In your cozy bed

    In a soft blanket

    With your cuddly toy!



    Aha... I know

    But, this is what I get

    When they start bombing

    The late night shelling

    I feel hot and sweaty

    Hiding under my bed

    Scared and terrified

    Is that really joy?



    No... No

    Joy is so sweet

    Like chocolate and candy-bars

    When you start eating

    You can never stop



    Aha... but I don’t know

    What is chocolate?

    And what is candy-bars?

    I guess I'll never know

    What is joy

    For I am only

    The heart
