Poetry

Introspective

Examine the chair of your thoughts

Your heart

Examine each heartstring

Search for defects

For broken tendrils

Examine these and fix them up

Some are sore, some are unused and some are still growing

You must care for them, tenderly as you would fragile wings

Feel the fleshiness in your hand

Let the vulnerability sink through you since it is all so precious

Let the joy of a complete heart thrill you

Let the agony of the breaks teach you

Let the determination of the beat inspire you

Let the oxygen breathe life into you

Let them guide you
