Unwilling Game of Hearts

Pondering how a person can treat another as a game to be played

An inconsequential pastime to be enjoyed but not truly cared about

Worse yet, as an unwilling pawn in a game of which they have no idea


The players will plead innocence, perhaps asking how you came up with such an idea

To get an answer is futile, because chances are this isn’t the first round they’ve played

Simply tend to your heart-you know-the thing that they cared naught about


When things like this happen, the tenderhearted question what life is all about

Do not look to the wrong person for the answers, simply look within for an idea

Never, ever feel guilt-instead, feel joy for not knowing how this game is played


Your idea that hearts are not toys to be played with is one of the truths in life-just about the simplest.
