Cracks In The Heart

Cracks are never good, they say,

For people try to peep and pry.

           They want to know what’s going on,

           And they won’t let it go until they try.

The cracks that form on the surface,

Are like windows to the soul.

          And though we try to cover them up,

          They always seem to take their toll.

But the truth is, the cracks are just,

A tiny glimpse of what lies beneath.

            They don’t show the whole picture,

            And the assumptions they bring are a thief.

They steal away our privacy,

And they take away our space.

             They make us feel vulnerable,

             And leave us without a trace.

So, we try to cover up the cracks,

And hide them from the world.

            We try to keep our hearts intact,

            And our emotions safely curled.

But maybe it’s time to embrace,

The cracks that we try to hide.

           Maybe it’s time to let them show,

           And let the world take a ride.

For the cracks that form on the surface,

Are a testament to our strength.

          To be true to ourselves and show,

          That we’re not just what we seem.

That we’re complex, beautiful beings,

And not just a simple theme.
