Careful

How careful

we must be

with the tender

and brittle soul

of a human being.

 

As cautious

as handling

fine porcelain

or unstable explosives.

 

The tender,

dangerous,

and delicate parts

might be hidden away

and seem tough

and immutable,

but be careful,

for they are fragile

and damage

as easily

as crystal glass

dropped on

a cold stone floor.
