Open Dear Heart

by Zachary A. Horn

Open
dear heart
and love
this world.

Blink
neither
at the light
nor dark.

Open
dear heart
and let
the whole
world in.

Discriminate
neither against
the lovely
nor wretched.

Open
dear heart
even though
it hurts.

Shrink
neither from
the deserving
nor despicable.

Open
dear heart
and love
this world.

Neither
blink
discriminate
nor shrink away.
