A child's poem about having a full heart
On Living With A Full Heart
When one is too hurt one cannot see others' pain;
is too blind with one's own.When one has many weights to lift, one cannot enjoy life.
When one has many expectations, one cannot be patient with others.
When one has fear, one cannot enjoy life.
When one does not give, one is making the heart lonely.
When one does not take, one is making the heart feel inferior
When one does not hope, one is shutting oneself into a tight closet But when one does not love,
one is killing one's self.
