Growing up - becoming adults - means that we divide
Our hearts in to pieces which we scatter far and wide.
We give chunks to parents, siblings, spouses, children, friends
Hoping, if they break the piece we gave them - that it mends.
Sadly, no one gets through life without a crack or three.
Life is like a journey and nobody rides for free.
When the journey's over though, the plain and simple fact
Is the trip was pointless if our hearts are still intact.
