To the Lover

You can build a wall around your heart,
But you can't stop what has already been broken
From crumbling and falling apart,
You can refuse to feel and get use to being numb,
Having fits of anger while crying on the shoulder of a chum,
But that won't stop what has already been done,
Pain is only experienced by the living,
Never close your heart,
Stay alive by chalking it up to lessons learn and keep on giving,
Soon you will discover...
Love eventually comes to the lover,


Habib Abu alateef Babatunde
