Heart Of Stone, Or A Heart Of Flesh?
Would you rather have a heart of stone, or a heart of flesh? Would you prefer your heart breakable, or have a heart that can never love? Explain why.
Enough to Withstand Steady Beating.
My heart is made of sturdy stone.
A boulder on which children play.
They jump up and down
Like a dog with a bone,
And my heart beats along with their fray.
It’s cracked from the motion
But never alone.
Pride’ll break it when they move away.
