the given heart

they were given a heart

before given a thought,

so they could feel our mother’s pain

while tearing her to pieces,

a seemingly interminable agony,

yet countless blessings, too.

for they were designed to bear

the pains of the world,

while joy resides in their bones

for one eternity and even more.
