Change of Heart

heart_in_hands

Following ones heart is always a risky venture
For we know that it can be misled easily enough
But follow it we must if we are to love again
Hoping it helps us live, not make us tough.

We hear people say they have “A change of Heart”
But is the heart really that different inside
Maybe they look and sound as if they’ve changed
And yet the feelings that they had, they hide.

The heart can be the seat of so much emotion
It can be treacherous and it can be so giving
We can say we aren’t going to let it feel again
But even a broken heart is needed to keep living.

Don’t hide what you feel even if you’re unsure
It will only confuse and lead you to more pain
Stop holding on to that which has given you hurt
And, when ready, build love and let the past wane.
