Picking Hearts

Ha, we can not pick hearts, how absurd!

But if you could, what would you look for?

I would look for one that doesn’t require anything too perfect

One that won’t give up on you, even though you might not always make sense

A heart that could withstand harsh conditions and changes in someone’s attitude.

I would look for experience, some, in all things that matter

One does not want a heart that cannot withstand pain

A heart that can crumble or die when exposed to the truth,

One that cannot determine between right or wrong

Or one that has been closed for too long.

I would want one that has compassion and love for all things

One that feels what another person is going through

Picking hearts would surely be a hard thing to do

I wonder if it would even be possible

Perhaps in another dimension or time

But not in this world, not the one that has mine.
