“What happens when people open their hearts?” “They get better.” ― Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
She looked inside herself one day
and had no words to say
She saw good things and bad things
and some in between things
and wondered what to take.
and in this she realized all in all
“I am as good as I can be bad”
and in choosing one we choose for all
so inside her heart she saw many things
one resounding truth to be sure
was all the love there is to see
can also be given most assuredly.
