Callousness of Heart

Post by Billy Bookmark » 10 Jul 2019, 13:36

One purpose of the heart
are the emotions we feel
Some good some bad
accepting what's real
When things go wrong
we close a door
Refusing to acknowledge
what hurt us before
We put up a wall
calling it strength
What we don't understand
are barriers at length
We forget how to love
We forget how to care
The price for protection
just doesn't seem fair
Instead of denying
embrace your pain
Yes it will hurt
but some how you gain
Reach out to others
when your world falls apart
Callouses are for hands
not for your heart

There's something about the truth in this poem that affects mr greatly. Thank you.
