“The state of one’s heart,” Gala countered,
“Is not so simple as that.”
And take heed – this is true.
There are moments of weakness
(Much more common, I find)
And there are moments of strength
(Hard to locate, but not nonexistent).
Depression can make you want to
Alter your physical appearance
While happiness can make you feel beautiful.
But the exterior is just a mold
Ever-changing, hardly more than putty
In a petulant child’s fist.
Why prize it so highly?
You may be pleased with your countenance
But while your heart is in shards
It does you little good.
Better to let the putty melt a bit
Better to let the child deform it a little
If a healthy heart is the end result.
