HEART OF STONE
Beats this heart, a strong yet fragile organ,
A complicated mystery that gives and sustains life.
There is no love in the heart, an emotion, state of mind,
We like to believe that a person has a big heart, not a good thing.
Speaking physically and emotionally, there are two hearts,
That one in your chest and a beautiful spirit of it that beats in your soul.
Some have a bad heart, a black heart that is sick with evil,
A heart of pure gold rests with those so gentle and kind.
The hardened heart that is created within a lifetime of mistrust,
A heart of stone, a piece exists in my spirit now as I’ve been hurt,
Let it grow I will not, keep chipping away to a heart of love and care.
Really enjoyed this writing.
Thanks for reading.
