I visited my friend who is a scientist

I visited my friend who is a scientist
He was so busy in the laboratory:

'What are you doing?' I asked


"I am picking up the remaining pieces
from my last experiment" he answered

I watched, curious and steady
'They are like shards of glass,
but soft and bleeding' I said

"Yes, it is my heart" he replied

'And what did you discover?'

"That nothing in the world
is heavier
than a broken heart..."

I did not know what to say
so I just watched him gather
the pieces of his heart in his hands

"But," he explained, "you should not allow

the mistakes of others
to take away your crown and kindness
otherwise, you will become just like them
So continue to write your own fairytale
because it is as real as the sun, moon
and stars

"It is just that, sometimes,
your heart needs to be broken
to let love in."
