I have heard that for the heart to open

It must break
break it open into a million pieces
so it is open to love
But what if we were all wrong?
what if what it needed was
to be whole again
unbroken, perfect form
to feel unconditional
forgiveness and love
what if instead of soul shattering pain
it felt like renewal
like rebirth, like remembering
the best part
we are trained to be broken
hooked on a fix
read a book, take a pill, a class
it is easier to hide
the vulnerability and uncertainty of love
the much harder path, but worth it
