The human heart is more than an anatomical organ: it has the capacity for compassion and love. Why is this historically seen as a weakness?
Author and history buff C. Heart grew up in Poland during the communist oppression and his parents were soldiers in the Underground Army fighting the Germans during WWII. With firsthand experiences of war-torn societies in tow, Heart pens book of poems, “Path of Hearts,” a reflection of the dark side of humanity in need of more “heart.”
“I had long felt an inner unease about the many issues I have encountered in life,” Heart says. “The collected body of human society demonstrates a general lack of recognition of some of the most devastating times in history.”
Featuring firsthand war stories in Poland and Russia, “Paths of Hearts” contemplates the horrific deeds committed during and after WWII, the lack of care and understanding in Western countries regarding this period in history, human selfishness in general, and humanity’s lack of consideration for animals.
Heart’s overall notion, based on his own life experiences and knowledge of human history, is that the human heart is the core of humanity and an untapped source when it comes to making the world a better place.
“I hope readers at least learn one thing: the importance of listening to their own hearts,” Heart says. “Listening and then following the heart's paths can't fail you as a human.”
