A Guarded Heart

“A guarded heart is a safer heart,

But a guarded heart is a dull heart.”

The North east would never be able to feel

the warm  winds of the South west

if a thick glass wall stood erect against it.

The cold skin would never be able

 to reveal in the heat of the sun if one

 remained in the comfort of a home.

A hatchling would never be able

to soar and touch the horizon

if it never took its first flight.

And a heart would never be able to learn

 from the ache and scar of a burn

 if it didn’t wander to close to the flame.

A guarded heart is a safer heart,

But a safer heart is a lonely heart.
