I will open my heart to you.
Even if you — or I — will leave,
I will open my heart to you knowing
This, because that is true
Courage. I accept the pain.
I have cheated death and change
Of any profit. This necessary price
To pay is painful — but worth it.
Shared with DVerse Poetics because I think that if people had courage like that, we could create a utopia. Also shared with Forgiving Fridays because the poem is about loving people, even at the risk of experiencing pain.
