When My Heart Was Young

girl-101690_1920

When my heart was young
It would crack under the slightest insult
Bringing tears to a child’s eyes

When my heart was young
I was able to feel love
For a complete stranger

When my heart was young
My mind was open
Seeing all the colors of the world

When my heart was young
It was shattered by hate
Leaving me detached and broken

Now my heart is mending
And I can feel the child
I used to be
