The Story of Your Heart

I know it’s hard for you to see                       
At this moment, what joy will be                                                         
While picking pieces off the ground                                                         
Of a world turned upside down 

Of course, from here, it looks all bad                                                     
And not to mention, feels like crap                                                         
And you may want to curse the skies                                                       
For what feels like betrayal and lies

But you are not being betrayed                                                           
You’re likely being pushed and saved                                                   
From things and people who aren’t right                                               
And don’t deserve you in their lives

The Universe is generous                                                                           
To people who believe in it                                                                   
With time and with a little faith                                                             
Your pain will mean something, someday

It may just lead you to such bliss                                                               
To a love, you never knew exists                                                             
To peace, to freedom and to friends                                                 
Beyond what you could imagine

Much good will come, and you will see                                                       
(I know because it did to me…)                                                                 
That one day you will thank the stars                                                     
And love The Story of Your Heart.

sucks. There's no sugar-coating or getting around it. Is there anything more disorientating than a fresh and painful breakup? Instead of sharing a pint of ice cream with a heartbroken someone or cracking out the cliche advice that no one wants to hear anyway (everything happens for a reason, it's their loss, what a jerk, what a b****!, etc.), why not give someone a glimmer of hope, with this sincere and reassuring poem that will remind them that better days (and partners!) are ahead. The stories of our hearts get messy sometimes...until one day, it all makes sense.
