(1997) Glass Heart


Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
do you fear to fall
to break forever?

Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
do you fear the hammer
that will break you forever?

Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
do you dread the cold
that could break you forever?

Glass heart
fragile and frail
beautiful and naive
together we'll face the fear
and break forever....

    I used to dread the cold that would break me forever... now? ... I simply let what is wash over me.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
