A Heart of Wonder

You have a strong heart

It’s been broken and stepped on

Aching and wounded

Still, you love others

Without fear of getting hurt

Bleeding Heart

by Vashti Q

I see and I hurt

So my soul bleeds on paper

Core soft as flowers

I’ll live with a bleeding heart

Until the last petal falls

“The more you suffer the deeper grows your character, and with the deepening of your character you read the more penetratingly into the secrets of life. All great artists, all great religious leaders, and all great social reformers have come out of the intensest struggles which they fought bravely, quite frequently in tears and with bleeding hearts.”

~D.T. Suzuki

“The moment that you feel, just possibly, you are walking down the street naked, exposing too much of your heart and your mind, and what exists on the inside, showing too much of yourself…That is the moment, you might be starting to get it right.”

~ Neil Gaiman
