Your Emotional City​.​.​.

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 2 by Nhojj



This week’s poem is inspired by emotional intelligence. Just as logic and reasoning are linked to mental intelligence, self awareness and sensitivity are linked with emotional intelligence. Both have a place in this world.


What is an Emotional City?  It is the metropolis your feelings have built up inside you.  

Like a physical city, emotional cities house high rises and ghettos.  The sun shines in the day and stars mix with electrical bulbs to illuminate the night.  There is opportunity and pollution and sometimes crime.  The weather can be pleasantly warm like summer days or freezing like winter storms that arise and demolish entire zip codes.  There are streets that are safe to walk, and traffic lights that will stop you with memories of loss and heartache.  

Your mood travels from neighborhood to neighborhood, affecting your spirit.  Your spirit never sleeps, but if you nourish it well, it will lead you to still waters.  It is here, by the rivers running deep, that you tend to the needs of your emotional city.  

Like any city, there must be laws for everyone’s safety, city limits to define boundaries, and effective waste to dispose of toxins, so they don’t build up.  An effective educational system, communication network and utilities help everyone live their best lives.

The mind, like a good mayor, can only govern by paying attention to your needs.  The mind must visit daily with the residents of your emotional city to discover what those needs are.  Every city is unique and every resident is special... listen and find peace.
