Invision a heart of glass. On that glass there are cracks.
They don't fully permeate the glass,
However they grow larger as the years go on.

The glass is also filled with water,
And every day it is filled.
And every day some water leaks out.

Sometimes the glass falls. When the cracks aren't as deep,
It doesn't fully break.
However, when the cracks are long and old,

The glass simply shatters.

This was something I wrote during study hall to explain to a friend how my heart is. However, its not shattered today.
