! Mind My Heart

Oh it's so difficult
to love the frugal

the heart
locked in the mind.

Oh it's so difficult
to praise the modest

the heart
locked in the mind

Oh it's so difficult
to love those who hate themselves

Oh it's so difficult
to bring joy to the suicidal

but worth a try

So much in so few words. Excellent poem. H
