When should it be more noble to break a good heart
Do you shatter it early, with a devastating blow
And hope for a clean break that will heal neatly,
leaving only the tiniest of scars hardly visible over time?
Or do you wait to see if it will break itself,
a weak heart. An inconsistent heart
That will pass it's own interests in time.
To slowly chip away at it when it proves this time to be true.
To let it rot away, and fester slowly, turning bitter, and dead.
When do intentions become clear to be either
generous and kind, or self serving, self preserving.
When does it become clear when to be noble.
When is it too late?
