A hand on my heart

When others salute me

beg me to give them money

attention

time

I place my hand on my heart

and walk on

for I have no business anymore to do with them

and I wish them all the best in life

There are many forgotten gestures

we slowly come to remember

that allows to communicate without words

and be understood by everyone around

Beware, the gesture must be done

with the right amount of strength and conviction

if your hand is hesitant

the message you convey will be weaker

Placing a hand on your heart

is a deep sign of respect and love

and of placing our fate and theirs in the hands of the divine

as we can’t bend them ourselves
