Profound Question

What is the heart?  What causes it to feel?  To beat?  To race when running or standing next to someone?  What is it about the heart that we love, and hate, so much?  Maybe we're better off not delving, not seeking to know why our hearts love and why our hearts break.  But that's not human nature.  That's not why we're here.  It's because of human nature that we understand, that makes us different.  Yet, sometimes, we hate being different.  We hate our hearts that causes us so much pain.  But at the same time, we are grateful that we have hearts.  Because we can love, it can cause healing and happiness instead of hurt and pain.  The problem is, the heart is unpredictable.  It's a variable, not one that can be read easily.  So what do you do? 
What can you do?  Never show your heart?  Or make it so it can be shown?  The real question is, what will cause it the most damage?  Never giving your heart keeps you safe, invulnerable, away from harm.  Showing your heart.  Showing your heart.  It makes you vulnerable, suceptible to harm.  Yet, many choose to show their hearts, despite the dangers that await them.  Why?  Because they choose to take a chance.  Take a chance on the person whose heart they give.  What are their chances?  No one knows. 

We are such peculiar creatures.  Completely illogical, we believe.  We believe that there is someone out there for us.  We believe because for many, it's all they have.  All they have is faith.  Because they have faith, they defy chance, stupify logic, and confound the natural man.  We believe.  That's all.  It may not seem a whole lot, but it's enough.  What if it's not enough?  What if faith is not enough for you?  What if you believe that "true love" doesn't exist?  That you'll never find it?  The answer is, you keep moving on.  You fight for what you want, even if your opponent is the world.  It may seem like an impossible task, but you know what the funny thing about the word "impossible?"  Impossible = I'm possible. 

That person is out there for you.  Praying for you, loving you, waiting for you, and working to find you.
Are you going to look for them too?  Search dilligently.  They could be near, they could be far.  The only way to know is to go and look.
